I have been trying to download Lahman's database to my home SQL Server Express 2008 (we use 2008 at work), but no joy so far. Lahman's .SQL file seems set up for a different database - it has double quotes and uses ` instead of ' for literals so syntax errors. Editing the 50+ MB file seems to take forever, so that's not a good option either (my home machine might make a better boat anchor than computer). Any suggestions (other than SQL Server 2012 and a new machine) or success stories? Thanks.

David stated it was not SQL Server.

Thank you. Any tips on loading an Access file or .csv into SQL Server? Or would I be better off trying to edit the Lahman file to bring it into line?
