Hi,

I am using MS.SQL Server 2008 Trial version of Enterprise Edition for testing purposes.
I have a database and want to add that into my current SQL Server.
When I am attaching that, I am getting the following error.
I do understand it is related to SQL Server version but I cannot change back the SQL Server into some other version now.

How can I resolve this issue?.

Your database was created in sql server 2008 r2 you cannot attach it to sql server 2008. Install sql server 2008 r2 and attach it to that.
