I am using MS SQL SERVER 2005. Is there a way to restore only one table from database back up file?
Any help, would be much appreciated.

    Accepted Solution

    No, You can create a database with only one table and backup-restore that database to another server.

    you cannot restore a single table from the backup.
    you need to restore the backup fully (to another db name), and then you can recover structure and/or data (as needed) from that table to the original db
