Sql express 2008 w/advanced options


  • I installed Sql Express 2008 w/tools on our server.   Now the programmer needs the reporting function.   Will 2008 Sql Express w/advanced options install over my current install without clobbering the databases?  Do we need to just do a fresh install?  Thanks  for the help.

  • If you only have installed Express database engine only in that case, download Express w/ Advanced Services and make sure to choose the same instance name of your current installation and add reporting services feature.

    when you run the setup  under installation type select add feature to existing instance (select your existing SQL express instance) under Features Selection Select Reporting Services.
