SQL Server – Change level of compatibility
Databases that are created with SQL Server 2008 can be imported into SQL Server 2012. Databases created in SQL server 2008 work with a standard degree of compatibility of 100. Set the standard degree of compatibility in SQL Server 2012 from 110 to 100.
The degree of compatibility does not have an effect on the whole server, it only affects the relationship to the database entered. The degree of compatibility doesn’t offer upwards compatibility to SQL Server 2008.
Use the compatibility degree as ongoing migration assistance to deal with version-related differences in the system behavior that are each controlled via the compatibility degree settings. Use the OLD DATABASE introduction to change the compatibility degree to 100. The new compatibility settings for a database come into effect on the next database update.
