The database server is generally a separate computer that runs either MSDE or SQL Server, which manages the data your users enter into GlasPacLX. Typical examples of the type of data stored in the database server include:
� Maintenance Data (e.g., Customers, Discounts, Products, etc.)
� Order Data (e.g., quotes, workorders, invoices, cash sales, etc.)
� Dispatch Data
� Vertex� Data (if applicable)

What version of SQL Server/MSDE is on your system?
To see which SQL Server/MSDE version is installed on your system, from the GlasPacLX menu bar, select Help, About GlasPacLX, and then the SQL Server Info button to display the following dialog box.
Select the OK button to exit the window.
When the database server is running, you will typically see an icon similar to the one shown below, in the bottom right corner of your window, near the clock.
