How to find out SQL Version and Edition

There are many ways to find out SQL Server Version and Edition. I am sharing some of the most common ones.

 

1. SQL Commands

SELECT @@VERSION

Another Script:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY (‘Edition’) as Edition,
SERVERPROPERTY(‘ProductLevel’) as SQLServicePackLevel,
SERVERPROPERTY(‘ProductVersion’) as SQLVersion

 

 

2. Using GUI – SSMS ->Object Explorer

Open SSMS and connect to SQL Instance, Right click sql instance and select properties.

here in the properties windows you can find out the SQL Version and Edition along with a lot of other useful details as well.

 

 

You can also find out the SQL Version (along with SP) when you connect NEW QUERY (in SSMS)

In the status bar below in New Query window (it show the SQL Version and Product Level)

 

 

SQL Server Version List

this list is taken from https://sqlserverbuilds.blogspot.ae/. This is one of the best places to refer for latest SQL releases and version details.

 

Hope this was helpful. !!!
