I would like to know what is a SQL Server sandBox. We don't have access to SQL Server and we use Microsoft Access as database. My question is if we get permissions to use sand box can we use it as a database? we are using MOSS so how will it help us from moving from access database to sql server sandbox?

Any reply is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Are you using Sharepoint Services with Access? is that possible? or is that a different MOSS?

Last I checked MOSS required SQL Server Standard Edition or better.

A SQL Server Sandbox is a usually a database on a SQL Server Test or Development box where developers and/or DBAs can play without affecting a development or test database. You will even find that DBAs and developers will sometimes set these up on their own desktop or laptop systems using SQL Server Express (free) or SQL Server Developer Edition (approx. $75 or less depending on where you buy it).

The benefit of putting on your desktop or laptop is that you don't have to worry about others messing in your sandbox.

Cool

You're using MS Access as the database to store SharePoint data?

That's what I thought. I didn't think you could ever store SharePoint data in an Access database. Granted, I don't use SharePoint much, but I thought I at least knew the basics of SQL Server and GUIDs everywhere. ;-)

Yes, we do have a SQL server with MOSS. The issue is the SharePoint list our department is using are very large. We are using MS Access now but we want to move these list in SQL Server. For this purpose is it OK to use SQL Server sandbox???
I hope this makes sense.

Huh? Your question makes no sense.

A sandbox is a test area, somewhere people can test and investigate things without breaking anything. It has nothing to do with MOSS and nothing to do with moving stuff out of MS Access, and there is no way that your 'large sharepoint lists' are using MS Access.
