Northwind Community Edition download

This article is primarily for personal reference.

The Northwind sample database setup scripts can be download from the CodePlex project Northwind Community Edition.

Sadly, that project is dead, but the original script can be found by going to Source Code, browsing the code, and checking in the Original Northwind Scripts directory.

It contains both views and procedures, but there is Microsoft SQL Server Community Projects & Samples page. Sadly, the links on the official Express page no longer work for the sample databases.
