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.

Microsoft Product Samples

Note: This is one monolithic set of all Microsoft SQL Server product samples (except for the sample databases, due to size constraints) and does NOT include any community projects. If you are interested in a specific subject area, links to download individual technology-focused samples are below.
