Yes Paul this is what i was after,
2008 test page copied from your output.
Slot 0 Column 3 Offset 0x8 Length 5 Length (physical) 5
z = 200.08
2005 test dbcc page shows the following Where is the data?
DROPPED = È
z = [NULL]
you should also notice one more thing that the Column order in SqlServer 2005 is 0 based index and 2008 is 1 based index although this is not my question, In Sql Server 2005 where is the data gone?
