It is possible to restore a .bak file (if it is a sql-server backup file),
using restore database t-sql command (if it is a sql-server backup file).

The question is what file type is it, what is the format of the file ?

There are various bulk-load utilities to load in a file into sql-server, but do you have the file format ?

And what does the file represent ?
