If you're just trying to move the database, then backup the database on the original machine and perform a Restore As on the new computer.

Hey Dlunceford !
thanks for the reply ... but this does not work. I already tried that but when i am trying to do just what you ask .. to transfer the database to my laptop .. it says that the databse can only be view in the original computer. I think I did not hit the button that said
to be shared by others. I mis read it. I just put to read by me, which screwed things up ... i think.
Anyway HELP ! How do I convert the file so that it can be read by my laptop ?
thanks for your help.
