Hi..

I try to restore my database but some how I got an error message saying
"Microsoft SQL-DMO(ODBC SQLState: 42000)
RESTORE DATABASE must be used in single user mode when trying to restore the database.RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally."

I'm using OS Win XP Pro..and Ms SQL Server 2000 Developers Edition..
What should i do  to resolve this problem?

Just like the error say I suppose, set the database in single user mode first.

EXEC sp_dboption 'Master', 'single user', 'TRUE'
