Copying a file from Database Server??
In our w2k3 LAN, My data (an XXX file) resides in a database server (MS SQL Server 2000). i do access and work with this file from an XP workstation (Laptop). Usually i must access the server to get to this file, so the question is how do i make a copy of this file in the local station so that i can work on this XXX file with my notebook while on a trip?

You can use MS Access and import the data or you can install the developer edition of SQL Server and simply attach your existing database files.

thanks Crito, but in my MS application when i open it, i simply cannot see an option for IMPORT from the File Menu and even from all the Main Menu, Tool Box, etc. can you give me a clearer way of doing this import?

I don't have Windows in front of me ATM, but you need to import it into something, so create an empty database first. Then I believe the menu item was called "get external data", under which you had the options to "import" or "link".
