Unanswered: Attach database between different sort orders
Just wanted to check. I've got a SQL 7.0 box on NT4 with about 40 databases (each about 500Mb-1Gb) which I want to move to SQL2000.
The main problem is, the 7.0 box was built with a sort order not officially supported by the finance software that uses the databases, so I want to build the SQL2000 box with the default sort orders and character sets.
I've done this in a test environment by copying the .mdf files accross and attaching them to the SQL2000 box, and this all seems to work. But is this advisable, and will there be any problems?
