We have a MOSS 2007 version sharepoint site, and a database in Sql server 2005 ver (a application specific database with all required tables)

we are accessing the data (by using <SharePoint:SPSqlDataSource />) and writing it back (by using <asp:sqldatasource />) from the MOSS 2007 SP2 front end.

Now the question is:

we have plan to migrate the application specific database from SQL Server 2005 to 2012.

so is SPSqlDataSource & <asp:SqlDataSource /> will support pulling data from Sql 2012 server ?

You should be aware of the Office SharePoint Server 2007 does not support SQL Server 2012 or later versions of SQL Server! So I think <SharePoint:SPSqlDataSource />will not work.

For more details check SQL Server 2012 not supported on WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007 and versions previous than SharePoint 2010 SP1
