Hi, I've eventually managed to get a copy of SQL Server 6.5 and I've made it available for download for SSC users.
You will need an FTP client (or command line!) Use 8-bit binary type (TYPE BINARY at cmd line) and a RAR extractor.
Username: sqlservercentral AT derekcolley.co.uk
I'll leave it online for the foreseeable future. There is a manual included in the download.
Install by using setup.exe in the I386 folder,documentation is in SQLBKS65. Extras scattered throughout inc. ISQL, DTS client and more.
---Note to developers:
CAST(SUBSTRING(CAST(FLOOR(NULLIF(ISNULL(COALESCE(1,NULL),NULL),NULL)) AS CHAR(1)),1,1) AS INT) == 1
So why complicate your code AND MAKE MY JOB HARDER??!
