Using a .bak file with SQL Server 7

Tags:
BAK
SQL Server 7.x
I currently use SQL Server 7, and I have a .bak file downloaded. Can you direct me on how to open this .bak file and how to convert it to allow usage with SQL Server 7?

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

Hello,
a bak file is a backup so in order to use it it needs to be restored in SQL.
If you have the same db and want to restore on this right click the db you have and choose restore otherwise you can create a new db that will be a restore for this bak file.
Bye

    if the .bak file was created from a database instance that is newer than SQL Server 7 then you will not be able to restore this to your SQL Server 7 instance.
