What should the file extension be for a backup file? In 6.5 the Ent
Manager would provide a default of .dat (I beleive). But in 7.0 the
extensions are it seems up-in-the-air. Can i choose whatever i want?

EM puts in .BAK when you type in a name for a new backup device.  You can
use another extension as you can with data and log files, but I would go
with the SQL Server convention to avoid any confusion down the road.

1. Converting full database back-ups to Flat Files


We are an NT shop currently supporting SQL Server 6.5. We have a
requirement to copy the one of the daily backups of our production
server database on tape on a weekly basis. The constraint is that the
database (.DAT) backup file MUST be converted into a FLAT file before
it can be copied on the tape. Is there any SQL Server or non-SQL Server
utility which will accomplish this please. (BCP is not being considered
as a possible solution here as it exports only individual tables of the
database in character format).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
