SQL Server Express file to Sql Server

I would like to copy the schema and data of a sql server express database file to a SQL Server Database. How can this be done and what steps would I need to take?

 

Thanks for any help

If you have Express Management Studio, you back backup your database, and them import it to SQL Server (or attach and reattach).

Justs open SQL Server Express Management Studio, connect to your Express instance, expand the databases node, select your database and right click, go to tasks and backup.

If you do not have the Management Studio you can download it here

Hi (and HELP!),   I downloaded the Personal WebSite Starter Kit and got it working no problem on my local machine.  But I've had nothing but frustration trying to get it up and running on a webhosting site.  I picked hostmysite.com which uses SQL Server 2005.  I was under the impression that it wouldn't be that big a deal to convert the .MDF files that Sql Server Express uses to a SQL Server 2005 database.  I tried using SQL Server Management Studio Express.  I was able to "see" my remote database on hostmysite.com, but I was not able to import the .mdf file...

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems with SQL Server Express & SQL Server 2000
Hi Guys, I have had SQL Server Express and Sql Server Management Studio Express installed on my machine for some time and recently tried to install a trial of SQL Server 2005 as well.  (Yes, I'm migrating from Visual Studio Express to Visual Studio Professional, just as in tended!) Everything went fine except that nothing seemed to be installed.  I searched in all the obvious places - both on the Start/Programs menu and on the hard-drive: nothing. A check under Add/Remove Programs showed that Sql Server 2005 Express was installed, but called SQL Server 2005. So after a number o...

SQL Server Database File vs SQL Server Database -VWD Express

I have been using SQL Server Express with ASP and VB for some years - I just create a DB in Management Studio Express, have SQL Server set to 'SQL Server and Windows authentication', and use a connection string with 'sa' and a password (I never have managed to get it working with 'integrated security', but that is probably irrelevant to this post). So I have a list of DB's attached to SQL Server that I can see, attach, detach etc in MSE. I am getting started with .NET. Working through a VWD Express book tutori...

Mixing SQL Server and SQL Server Express

Seems to me you already know the answer to this question in the way you ask the question.  SQL Server express is just for normal web applications for learning/teaching and small time deployment.  Obviously by logic heavy traffic ( esp in the 1 million range even in t...
