    Hi There

    Can U help me?
    Have a MDF file from SQL7 and I attempt to attach the databse to sql 2000.
    However, keep getting this error when Accessing the database.

    Cannot Open Database 'dbname' from version 524. Upgrade database to latest version.

    Is there a work-around to solve this problem

    Thanks in advance

    version 524. This is just a guess but I think this file is in a older format than SQL 7.

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    When attaching the SQL Server 7 database to SQL Server 2000, what messages are you seeing when you excute sp_attach_db 'YourDatabase', 'YourDatabase.mdf', 'YourDatabase.ldf'? You should see something akin to...

    I forget how to check the compatibility level in SQL Server 7, but it should say 70.
