I am on a shared hosting environment, and my hoster wants to put my MSSQL 2005 database on the MSSQL 2008 server, he tells me all works ok and that they are compatible? I have many TSQL scripts etc

Are they, are there any know issues with this database to sever match up ???

Please advise ...thanks:-)

There are features that changed and things that got removed. You should test carefully on SQL 2008 before upgrading.

Be aware once you attach a SQL 2005 DB to SQL 2008 it becomes a 2008 database and cannot be downgraded (vial backup/restore or detach/attach) again.

or you can open the SQL Server 2005 instances from the SQL server 2008 management studio. In this you will be working as if in SQL server 2005.
