Convert MS SQL 2012 Express database to MS SQL 2008 Standard?
Posted on 2014-03-10
Hi, I am told that theoretically it is possible to Convert a MS SQL 2012 Express database to MS SQL 2008 Standard database? I tried to detach the database from 2012 and attach it to 2008, but it says something about "family mismatch" or something. So that didn't work. Does any SQL guru's have instructions that will show me how to do this? I'm told by our POS company SQL guru that it can be done, but they won't do it for their customers, NOR point them in the right direction.
One person in a sql forum suggested running sql 2012 express AND sql 2008 standard along side each other and "replicate" the database from the 2012 to 2008. Then use the 2008 database moving forward..... Only problem is, he didn't give any instructions.....
Any help would be appreciated.
