Hi All,

Please can someone tell me the difference between a default instance and named instance between the SQL server.

Under what circumstances should I select named and on under what situation should I select default.

When I open SQL server management studio, how would I know that this is installed on default and this is with named.

Default instance and Server instance is it applicable to the databases or the server.

Finally would there be a difference while connecting via the ODBC, towards the front end aplplication. while trying it (default and named)
