You should hire me![^] Big Grin | :-D

Seriously though, you might as well not test at all if your test environment is eight years more modern than your production environment... Unsure | :~
I know it's easy to say, but your environments really should be as similar to each other as possible.
That makes it a lot easier to find environment specific bugs should they arise.
Maybe you can set your dev and QA environments in 2008R2 compatibility level[^] so at least your modern code doesn't work in those databases either even if it's supported by the engine?
I know you're in a difficult situation and such changes have to go through umpteen layers of management, but it's a thought Smile | :)
