Microsoft SQL Server Community Projects & Samples

SQL Server 2008 product samples are available for each project below or you can download all the samples together (except AdventureWorks), or select from the menu below for specific projects. Download the AdventureWorks family of sample databases separately.

SQL Server 2005 product samples can still be downloaded and separately AdventureWorks for SQL Server 2005.

New Stuff
We've added some new cloud data project links and new Integration Services and Entity Framework links, too, as well as a fair number of new links to tools and utilities projects.

CodePlex is the project hosting site for Microsoft SQL Server Samples and Community Projects. Projects listed here are official Microsoft samples for SQL Server (released with Service Packs or major releases of SQL Server) and applications developed by MVPs, and the SQL Server community at large, including:
Unless noted otherwise, the download links are for the latest release of the project (typically SQL Server 2008); see the individual project sites (on the Releases tab) for prior version releases. Most projects have more than one file download for a given release; read carefully to be sure you choose the ones that you need.
