Detach & Attach User Databases

October 26, 2009



>>Script Language and Platform: SQL Server 2000
This script moves databases to different physical locations. This script can also be used to just detach/attach user databases as part of your bigger process.

You can customize the script to use cursors which I HATE.

DECLARE @Path varchar(400)
SET @Path = "D:\MSSQL\Data\"
