    Sharepoint and SQL restore

    I want to restore a document library from my old sharepoint system I have a backup file of it but I no longer have that sharepoint installation. I wondered how this could be done?

    There are various bits of software which do a selective restore, which might work.

    Or (and again I'm not sure if this would work) you could try a restore using the stsadm restore command (Restore: Stsadm operation (Office SharePoint Server)) and then export the document library into your new site.

    Well I've restored it to another instance I can see the records I want in the AllDocs table however I'm at a loss of how to extract these and put them into my sharepoint website?

    Not sure if this'll be any help, but might be worth a try - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sh...545621033.aspx

    As far as I'm aware document libraries are essentially just a list.
