Loads a backup copy of one of the following:
- User database (LOAD DATABASE)
- Transaction log (LOAD TRANSACTION)
- Header information about the dump (LOAD HEADERONLY)
Important The LOAD statement is included in Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 for backward compatibility. The LOAD statement is identical to the RESTORE statement. It is recommended that the RESTORE statement be used instead of the LOAD statement. In a future version of SQL Server, LOAD will not be supported.
