Cant see how to just look at my backup Database

I have ACT 2006 and I did a backup of my database before changing modifying anything on it... When I modified it, I lost some infomrations such as mobile phone. These informations are still on my backup but If I restore my backup, I will lose other informations I udpated since the modifications...

 

Is there a way to only look at my backup without restoring it ??????

 

Thank You

You can restore your database with a different name and view the data without overwritting your existing database and then import the information as needed.

Hello Chris,
When you restore the backup, choose the "Restore As" option. This allows you to restore it as separate database with a different name. No need to rename the actual backup file.
