I am trying to do a point-in-tim recovery.
When I add a fullbackup file and transactionlog file in Restore Database window, I get the volumn on device 'E:\backup\finace_a\finace_apps_backup_200611080201.bak' is not part of a multiple family media set.backup with format can be used to form a new media set. RESTORE HEDERONLY is terminating abnormally..

It sounds from your description and the error message as if you might be attempting to restore the full backup and the log backup in one command.  If that's the case, this is your problem.

You need to restore the full backup first, WITH NORECOVERY, and then restore transaction log backups one by one in order, specifying WITH NORECOVERY until you've got them all applied.  At that point you can restore with recovery, and you're done
