    I have a corrupt .mdf file and all I want to do is get the stored procedures
    & table structure out of the file. Is this possible? (I do not have a
    backup ).

    That depends on the level of corruption. As long as the procedures weren't
    encrypted, they are stored in the MDF file as text and may be fished out.
    The tables are another story.

    You are a bl**dy star.....I'm so stupid, I should have thought to open the
    file as a text file. Thank you so much!!!
