Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No there is no way to attach a database that was created in SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2000. You can only go up, you can not go backwards.

To move a database down a version, you have to script out the objects and then export the data, or use the database transfer wizard.
