Converter SQL database from 2008 to 2005

Hi All,
I am trying to convert a SQL server database to go from a test bed site to our live environment however the versions are not compatible. I have tried to generate a script but keep receiving an error even as an SA user at the same location:


Property TextHeader is not available for StoredProcedure '[ACOCMP1].[add_hiredest]'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights.  The text is encrypted. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately, you cannot run a SQL 2008 database on SQL 2005 instances. You can go the other way, but cannot come back even if the compatibility level was set to 90 (SQL 2005).
