can any one tell me what the main differences are in the two editions? also can you use and express 2005 edition database on sql 2005? if not how would you do that?
Look here for a detailed comparison between the two.
Yes, you can use Express databases on SQL Server 2005. Just attach it to an instance of SQL Server 2005.
Is this enough information?
