Hey everyone,

I'm trying to create a copy of an MSSQL database with the RESTORE WITH MOVE command.  Please find below the code I am running in my futile attempts ( database names have been changed to protect the innocent ).

I expect to see a new database called NewDatabase on my server containing all data from OldDatabase.  Instead, I get:

Changed database context to 'OldDatabase'.

Query OK, -1 rows affected (234 ms)

Query OK, -1 rows affected (468 ms)

Changed database context to 'master'.

Query OK, -1 rows affected (249 ms)

Query OK, -1 rows affected (249 ms)

and no new database.


USE OldDatabase
 
BACKUP DATABASE OldDatabase
TO DISK = 'C:\backups\7-14.bak'
   WITH NAME = 'Full Backup of OldDatabase 7-14';
GO
 
USE master
 
RESTORE DATABASE NewDatabase
 
FROM DISK = 'C:\backups\7-14.bak'
 
WITH MOVE 'OldDatabase' TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\NewDatabase.mdf',
MOVE 'OldDatabase_Log'  TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG\NewDatabase_log.ldf',
     REPLACE 
GO
;

Perhaps I should have been clearer:
1. Click on the Databases object.
2, Press F5

I've found the solution.  I need to add a "GO" on line 2 in the above code.

With all due respect, that makes no sense whatsoever.  But whatever works for you.
