Hi there,

I am trying to load a backup from my online server to my local but keep getting the error in the title of this question.

In the title of the error it says MIcrosoft SQL-DMO (ODBC SQL State: 42000)

Would anyone be able to help me with this?

Cheers,

Fracture

The error means that your log file (.ldf) does not exist by the name in the backup, so your online server and local server must be set up slightly differently.

If you know where your local log file is, you can use restore with the MOVE option.

RESTORE LOG database_name
FROM < backup_device >
MOVE 'logical_file_name' TO 'operating_system_file_name'
