Hi All,

I created new database with 30 Tables,every Table filled with corresponding data.

Know I want to transfer my entire database to another person through USB,because we don't have a server.

At the database creation time,I provided the Login details.

How can I Transfer my entire database(with Table) to another person through USB.

can anyone help me.

Thank you.

Create a backup file and transfer the .bak file onto the USB.
If the .bak file is to big - then compress the backup .
If it's still to big , you may need to take more drastic action by export the ddls and rebuild db scripts and send data and import instructions
