Yet another poorly worded question.
You can't use "SQL Server 2000 SP 3 or later" or other older versions to upgrade to
SQL Server 2005.
You use "SQL Server 2005" to upgrade from older versions.

Actually, I thought it was poorly worded in a different way.

To me, the phrase "Only SQL Server 2000 SP3 or later" implies that SQL Server 2000 SP4 is included. So if you tick SP3, you must tick SP4. Presumably if there's a SQL Server 2000 SP5 it will also be included.

And if you are already running SQL Server 2005 RTM, then you can't "upgrade" to SQL Server 2005 because you already have it.

So since the question asked for 3 answers, I decided they had to be the middle 3.

Poor wording made it into a trick question when it was so simple, I got it wrong by the way in the same way as the above comment.

This was my first thought. If it's so poorly worded, I guessed "3 answers" is a trick since you can't upgrade 6.5 and assumed the other way, concluding that you can only use sqlserver2005 to upgrade anything to sqlserver2005.

Definitely a poorly worded question. In addition to the reasons stated above, why would you have 'version(s)' and (choose 3) in the same sentence. Hehe

Sorry about the confusing wording everyone. I will get future questions proofed more before submission.

Poorly worded or not, I would never do an in-place upgrade.

Ain't that the truth...

Of course
SQL Server 2005 RTM or later, Only SQL Server 2000 SP 3 or later, SQL Server 7.0 SP 4 or later

The middle choice excludes the other two. Only is a very powerful word.

A better way to ask the question would have been...

Which of the following cannot be upgraded the SQL Server 2005:

O SQL Server 2005 RTM
O SQL Server 2000 SP4 or later
O SQL Server 2000 SP3 or later
O SQL Server 7.0
O SQL Server 6.5

Bu perhaps it would then have been too easy.

Poorly worded or not, I would never do an in-place upgrade.

And, of course, the first thing to do when planning an upgrade is look at the release notes and see what the prerequisites are so this question is a bit academic.BigGrin
