Hi! I just need to confirm I am correct when I am concluding that a .bak file created from a SQL 2012 database cannot be restored into a SQL 2005 environment, correct?

Is it possible to create a .bak file in SQL 2012 that would restore into 2005 using some kind of compatability option during creation?

No its not possible, if you just want to export the data, you can use the inport export data wizard.
