I am wanting to restore a DB from a dump from a SQL 6.5 server to a test SQL 6.5 server  then I will upgrade the SQL 6.5 server to a SQL 7. so that we can more easily migrate our data without potentially harming our data in our 6.5 db.  when trying to restore the DB I run into the following error.

The database you are attempting to load was dumped under a different sort order ID (42) than the one currently running on this server(52) and at least one of them is a non-binary sort order.

Yeah that pretty much does it. If there is a smarter way to do this I am totally up for it.

The way I have done this before is to;
1)      Create a full backup of the source database.
2)      Create a database by the same name on the target server and perform a full backup.
3)      Overwrite the target backup with the source backup.
4)      Restore the source backup to the target machine.

It’s sort of tacky but it typically works. I have even done this with different versions of SQL Server.

yeah I think the problem was that that the sort order was different. we just tried reinstalling the the SQL 6.5 software and found that we could change the sort order and the code pages chosen. Waiting for master to regenerate.  So now if anyone has a good idea how to upgrade a 6.5 db to a 7.0 other than the process I am already undergoing I would appreciate hearing it.

In 6.5 You CAN'T restore the database unless the sortorder is the same.  You'll have to change the sort order and then restore...

Sorry, see you figured that out.  The upgrade from 6.5 to 7.0 totally changes your database server (no way around it).  So, make sure you have a backup to fall back to if needed.  This is about the only option you have.
