HI all. I just purchased a new shopping cart.  Our current site is hosted on a shared server.  The hosting company saved my existing db to a .bak file.   The new cart has a web admin section that can import my old sql data directly into the new ms sql tables.  Currently, I have access and the trial version of SQL 7 installed on my xp local computre.  I have downloaded the .bak file onto my local, as well.  My question is how do I create a sql db with the existing .bak file using access or the trial version of sql 7 on my xp computer?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about SQL 7.  I'll look back at that version, but here's an explanation:

http://cephas.net/blog/2003/05/14/restoring_a_bak_file_to_a_sql_server_database.html

when restoring a .bak file to a SQL Server database where the .bak file was not originally backed up from, right click --> All Tasks --> Restore Database --> From device --> Select Devices --> Add your .bak file. Click OK. Click the Options tab. Now on the left side you should see the Logical file name of the database from the .bak file. On the right side under the lable 'Move to physical file name', should be the path that the .bak file originally existed as. This field needs to be changed to the path & file name of the database you're restoring too. After modifying those two fields, check the 'Force restore over existing database' and click 'OK'.
