Venki

you didnt indicate in your first post that the backup was a sql2005 database going into sql2000. This cannot be done. Only option is to DTS the data across to a sql2000 structure database

You can never downgrade your database. it is not possible to restore a 2005 backupfile onto a 2000 server, same thing with the 2005 and 2008.

You cannot restore a SQL Server 2005 database backup to SQL Server 2000.



Pradeep Thanks again for your clarifications.

Is it possible to transfer the database directly from 2005 server to 2000 server?

How can I use the database? In the mean time I ask my admin team to upgrade the my development Server to 2005.

Thank You

No, not through backup and restore method, instead you can script out your 2005 database and then run it against your 2000 server.

Sorry,
I haven't seen the next page.

Yes, you are right, it is my mistake, not to tell the back up file is from 2005. But I thought this versioning won't be a problem for restoration.

So I can create tables manually and do the DTS from 2005 db to 2000 db.

Thank You

Thanks a lot Krishna.
I am thinking to do the same. and also I will ask my admin team to upgrade my dev sql server to 2005. This is better and if it is not possible will do what you told.

Thank You
