  • Business Contact Manager - export contacts from SQL Backup

    Hi

    I have a *.bak file from a SQL express backup (An online backup) of a Business Contact Manager 2007 SQL express instance and i need to extract the contents from the backup to a format such as csv so i can import into an exchange outlook mailbox.

    If i install office 2007 and BCM 2007 on a pc how do i import the sql express *.bak file into the new instance od Business Contact manager so i can export it to csv format?

    Thanks

    You will be best to install SQL Express and the management tools: http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2...s/express.aspx
    Restore the db from the .bak and run queries to export the data
