I need to restore a database BAK to SQL Server 2008 Standard.  One object in the BAK file has compression and will not restore in this version of SQL Server, only the enterprise version.  So I need the capability of viewing the file and selecting what tables in the database I want to use or I need a way to restore the database without the compressed objects.

You have a couple of options.  
1. Upgrade to the Enterprise Edition.
2. Upgrade to SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition.

The best way is to use Enterprise Trial edition as suggested by acperkins as there is no need for you to pay anything. Once you get the required data, you can use your original edition again.
