Do you mean you have existing files you want to load to sql server?

Just copy them to the server and execute this from query analyzer:

sp_attach_db 'whatyouwanttocallit','path:\auto.mdb','path:\auto.ldf'

EXEC sp_attach_db @dbname = N'auto',
   @filename1 = N'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\auto.mdf',
   @filename2 = N'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\auto.ldf'

Hi khan2000,


assuming the files are sql server files which where properly detached for there existing server
and that that server is / was at the same patch / version level as the server you are
trying to install them on...

Cheers!

Hopefully 'mdb' was a typo. MDB is an Access file (unless of course it was renamed from MDF)
