I have been using SQL Server 2008 With Visual Studio 2008. Now I am using SQL Server 2012 With Visual Studio 2012. For now, I just want to get the database updated so I can restore it in SQL Server 2012. Is there a query that will handle this task? I tried using the restore query that I always use:
Database name:  --          jandmmfg

Restore database jandmmfg from disk
= ‘F:\Backups\SQL\jandmmfg.BAK’
With recovery, replace

...

This gave me an error…

...
