I just downloaded his sp_ABBackupRestore.zip stored procedures that he created back in 1998. I started using them on a test server and they work really good. I would like to know if there is an updated version from his original post or if there is a new one for SQL Server 2005? I hope he's still around...

Thank you.

Love this proc and use it all the time. Having issues running it on SQL 2008. Is it compatible, or is there a different version? Here is the error I am getting:

RegQueryValueEx() returned error 2, 'The system cannot find the file specified.'
Msg 22001, Level 1, State 1
Msg 213, Level 16, State 7, Procedure xp_restore_filelistonly, Line 1
Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition.


Thanks

So... what's the link for the article/script?

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Clint,

Sorry, I haven't had time to convert it to SQL 2008. I've gotten "this close" to installing 2008 on a test box here, but other day-job priorities have taken over. When I get it installed I will post an update.

Love your work by the way.

Yep... that's the one. And, after reading that bad boy, I have to say that the feeling is mutual, Vince. Smile
