Hello, I have a SQl 7.0 database that has been corrupted.  Our backup was rewritten with the corrupted data so any time I restore the DB, I get the same error.

My question is: can we use the log file to restore the database to a few days earlier so the corrupted data is erased from the system?

Thank you,

LR

just if you have not corrupted database backup

BTW: what in your case "corrupted"?
did you mean - somebody deleted or changed data?

correction:
just if you have not corrupted database backup you can restore database to point of failure ( if it had transactional log backup)
