Hi all.

I have 3 databases that I want to move from SQL Server 2000 to another box which has SQL Server 2008. What is the best way to do this?

I was thinking making a backup of each database on SQL Server 2000 and then going to SQL Server 2008 and restoring those files. Is that possible?

Thank you in advance!
