Hi All - We currently operate on SQL 2008 Enterprise with about 150 GB of tables spread between several databases.
We recently inherited a bunch of scripts/procedures from a vendor that have commands that are only compatible on 2012 and later editions.
This leaves us with no other choice, but to upgrade the version. We already have license for 2012 standard, however (as most of you know), it won't let you go from 2008 Enterprise > 2012 Standard.
Is there a way to do this without it being messy or requiring to do a clean format?
Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated.
