    Default SQL Express 2005 to Enterprise

    I'm currently working for a Point Of Sale company that sell Cash Register Express form PC America for their PC base point of sales machines. It uses SQL Express 2005 for the database, but the problem is as some of you might
    already know is that once the database reaches 4 GB SQL Express bombs out because of the " size limitations " .

    SQL Enterprise however does not suffer the same short comings as it's express counterpart. So my question is this can I migrate my database built in Express to Enterprise

    You will have to upgrade to SQL Server 2005. This will unlock the capabilities you are looking for.

    1. install sql server 2005 enterprise
    2. use management studio (or whatever) to log into sqlserver express and detach the database.
    3. log into sqlserver 2005 enterprise and attach the same database files.

    done.
    open dll in hex editor and ..... (google it)
