you need restore this .BAK file to a server to get database online and then you can use sql query to retrieve the data from required table(s) within db.

Neither. You should be using Microsoft Sql Server 2000 for getting the data.

There are various commands you cans use to interogate the .BAK file. This will supply yoou with enough information to construct a valid RESTORE DATABASE command. More info at : http://www.sqlserver-dba.com/2012/09/sql-server-backup-file-information-needed-for-restore-sql-database.html
