Are you able to start SQL Server Agent in SQL Server 2008 Express Edition?
I can't find any proof of this.
According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645993.aspx it is not supported.

Please explain.

thanks,

Robbert

According to http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/editions-compare.aspx (SQL Server 2008 - Compare Edition Features) under Enterprise Manageability there is no SQL Server Agent in Express EditionExclamation Mark

How does anyone create and execute a job without this service?

Ref: Editions and Components of SQL Server 2005 - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms144275%28SQL.90%29.aspx

I can't see anything about jobs there. The link seems to be not relevant to the question.

What is the use of a job if there is no service to be executed (scheduled) with? Any new features in 2008 Express?

We have had a number of questions which included a deliberate spelling error that had an answer xxx is wrong because it does not exist. As far as I know 'Enterprize' edition does not exist, but I have heard of 'Enterprise' edition and would have selected that if it was given in the question.

You can get SQL Agent on SQL 2008 Express Edition to start. You need to set up account rights and enable the agent XPs.

But as soon as it starts it gives a message that Agent is not supported on Express edition and then stops. IMHO this is a case where you win the battle but loose the war.

This was not a reply to your post, I know about the relation between jobs and SQL Server Agent Cool

I quoted the link from the explanation of the question. That link contains nothing about jobs and SQL Server Agents and should be corrected.

Strictly speaking you can create a job in SQL 2005 Express as well. All the necessary stored procedures in the msdb are there and you can execute them succesfully. You cannot execute them on a schedule because there's no SQL Agent, but a job exists.
Just try this:
USE msdb ;
GO

EXEC dbo.sp_add_job
@job_name = N'Daily Backup' ;
GO
select * from sysjobs
GO
Exec dbo.sp_delete_job @job_name = N'Daily Backup' ;


I think the question should be in which version can you execute jobs on a schedule.
