I 've set the file properties of both data files and transaction log file to "Automatically grow file" and maximun file size to "unrestricted file growth". The data file is OK but the transaction log file bigger and bigger and i can't shrink anymore.When i changed to "restrict file growth" option and give some amount, it shows the alert "The transaction log file is full ..." or something like that when i worked on the database.

How can i shrink for that transaction log file,please? Is there better solution to solve that problem? Please advice me.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
