How to find the SQL Server service pack is installed

09 June,2015 by Tom Collins

Question: How can I check programmatically the SQL Server  service pack?  I’d like to check all SQL Servers , create a report detailing the service pack levels.

Answer:   The SERVERPROPERTY('productlevel')  returns the service pack level.   To make a useful decision I like to present some extra information.

I include Server Name, Build Level, SQL Server Edition, Server or Default Collation,Instance Name, LCID

    SERVERPROPERTY('servername') as 'Server Name',
    SERVERPROPERTY('productversion') as 'Build Level', 
    SERVERPROPERTY('productlevel') as 'Patch Level',  
    SERVERPROPERTY('edition') as 'SQL Server Edition',
    SERVERPROPERTY('buildclrversion') as 'CLR version',
    SERVERPROPERTY('collation') as 'Server Collation',
    SERVERPROPERTY('instancename') as 'Instance Name',
    SERVERPROPERTY('lcid') as 'LCID'
