I have installed a SQL Server 2005 IBM Rational RequisitePro DB into my local SQL Server 2008. Can I restore this database back to the SQL Server 2005 box? I know this was a problem when going from SQL Server 2005 to 2000.

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

You can not backup a database and restore it to a prior version of SQL Server. You’ll need to script out the objects and then copy the data from the SQL 2008 database to the SQL 2005 database.
