Function to return the SQL Version Number

By Andy B.,

This function returns the SQL Build Number as an int. i.e. 7, 8, or 9. @@Version is great, but super long, and the formatting of the string has changed over the years. This helps me find out what version of SQL I'm working on in a quick and efficient manner. The script includes the drop statement as well. Should work in all versions of SQL (Tested in SQL 2000 8.x and SQL 2005 9.x).
