  • Hi T9omek,

    It is the latest for earlier versions of SQL Server, but the SQL Server Core Factor Table is no longer used to calculate the required number of core licenses needed for SQL Server 2016 and later versions.

    For detailed information about the license issue, please call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. For international customers, please use the to find contact information in your locations.

    For Volume Licensing Service, please refer to

    Hope this could help you.

    Best Regards,
