Hello all,

My knowledge of ArcSDE and SQL server is limited so I apologize if this question seems silly.

I need to get a copy of an ArcSDE SQL server (2000) geodatabase from someone but they don't have ArcGIS intalled to connect to it (I could do a connect in ArcCat if they did and then just export to an mdb). So can they export the database using (within) SQL server 2000? How do they do that? Once I have that copy how can I use it within ArcGIS? Can I just put it on my server and connect to it in ArcCat? They can export shapefiles but I need the network and relationship tables from the geodatabase. I don't think it's that easy but wondering if this is possible.

I appreciate any help and knowledge!
