So we have some software that runs off of SQL Server.  One of the updates has the following command:

dump transaction [DYNAMICS] with no_log

which worked fine in SQL Server 2000.  Does anyone know the equivalent in 2008?  When run now, I receive the following error:
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'transaction'.

try this alternates fom Enterprise manager
      1. set the database to simple recovery model
      2. Shrink the file
      3 .Set back to Full (If required). ie. If you are not taking TL backup let it be in Simple recovery model only
