Can I Use SQL Server Management Studio 2005 For 2008 DB?

- 1 answer

I am looking to manage a SQL Server 2008 DB using Management Studio 2005. The reason for this is because our server is a 64-bit machine and we only have the 64-bit version of the software.

Is this possible?

How about managing a SQL Server 2005 DB using Management Studio 2008?
