How did you migrate them? Did you upgrade the database by restoring it from the old server to the server? Did you upgrade the old server to SQL 2005? Did you attach the database to a new machine running SQL 2005? In all these cases the stored procedures are written exactly how they were when [...]

I see three options for you. 1. Change the foreign key so that it uses the same columns for the parent and the child. 2. Add computed columns to the table so that if the Lead_Client value is not null then the values are entered in automatically. 3. Change the front end so that the [...]

That is very strange. The only reason that the differential backup would not be very small after the full backup was taken would be if the COPY_ONLY flag was used when the full backup was taken. Check the maintenance plan and make sure that the package isn’t generating T/SQL using this flag.

You can flush the cache using DBCC, or restarting the SQL Server. If you do an sp_recompile on the object being queried then you will mark all the plans for that object as invalid. You can also change a server wide setting which will flush the cache.

If the MDF isn’t damaged you should be able to attach the MDF without the LDF using the sp_attach_single_file_db system stored procedure. This will generate a new log file when it attaches the database. If this works without issue run a DBCC CHECKDB to ensure that there aren’t any problems with the database. Keep in [...]
