LOAD (Transact-SQL)

Loads a backup copy of one of the following:

  • User database (LOAD DATABASE)
  • Transaction log (LOAD TRANSACTION)
  • Header information about the dump (LOAD HEADERONLY)
ms176032.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifImportant:
The LOAD statement is included for backward compatibility. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Instead, use RESTORE (Transact-SQL) and RESTORE HEADERONLY (Transact-SQL).
