Re: Error while Restore from bak File

I encountered a similar issue, I forget the error message I received but it sounds similar.

I also was attempting to restore a database using a .bak file. I was using text replacement to restore the .bak file to the database name I had provided in the SQL Login dialog.

However I realised this will not work because the SQL Login dialog is opening a connection to the database that you specify in that dialog.

I overcame this by using a SQL script that included the SQL statements to create the tables/sp's/views/data rather than using a SQL script that restored the .bak.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Alan

It helps me....!!!!

What one can try is in sql Scripts, drop a table that is created during sql login dlg and then try restore

Thanks Again
