Microsoft is currently planning to make a kernel change to Microsoft Axapta 3.0 SP4, so that the solution will be able to support the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database. We expect that the kernel change will be available through a General Distribution Release (GDR) in January 2006. Please see the timeline below for details on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 support.
