MS SQL Server return from Emergency Mode

I had a database I could not access until I set it using the following...

ALTER DATABASE emergencydemo SET EMERGENCY;
    GO
ALTER DATABASE emergencydemo SET SINGLE_USER;

How do I get it back to normal mode?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're in emergency mode then you're basically at the very edge. There's no guarantee that you'll come back from this but here's something to try:

DBCC CHECKDB (emergencydemo, REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS) WITH NO_INFOMSGS;
GO
ALTER DATABASE emergencydemo SET MULTI_USER;
GO

I should emphasize that data loss IS a possibility with this command.

You could first try
DBCC CHECKDB (emergencydemo, REPAIR_REBUILD) WITH NO_INFOMSGS;
GO

Good luck!
