Using a .BAK file

I have the following question. For a customer we are setting up QV app but since the server is not running I've recieved an SQL backup file (.BAK) with data to start building the load script. However I've got no idea how to import this file into Qlikview. Help is very much appreciated

Re: Using a .BAK file

A .Bak File is a SQL backup file. This is probably the backup of their database. This file will have to be restored to a SQL database as far as I know. Hope this helps.

Re: Using a .BAK file

You need to restore the backup file (.BAK) at Sql server. Then you can start building you load script in QV by making connectivity with it.

Hope , it will work.
