I've been experimenting with moving some of our data from Access into microsoft's 'free' SQL Server Express. The computer in question is currently running XP Pro and has TI 9 Home installed (though I can upgrade to 10 or 10 workstation if that would help). It is my understanding that the SQLServer needs to be stopped before the snapshot is created. Can anyone help me create the scripts I will need to stop the server prior to the snapshot and restart it afterwards? Thanks for any help. I've very new to SQL and though I've been using TI since v8, I've never done anything this advanced with it either.
