tshin writes "I have a question.
I am trying to restore .bak file, that was created on MS Sql 2000 server, to MS SQL 2005 Express running on my laptop.
Is it possible to do that?
because when I tried to do it I got an error message saying "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'AAA' database. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Express.Smo)

Please help me out.

Yes you can restore from 2000 to 2005 Express.

You probably need to select the replace option in the restore command or restore GUI.
