Default Need help moving my database

I made the mistake of getting involved with a friend who started a hosting business but now I want out. My question is how on earth do I get my MSSQL database off of his server and onto my local drive. I tried doing the backup but that errors out with permission errors. I've tried export data by setting the destination to my local SqlServer and that errors out also with permission errors I assume. when I just generate a sql script it keeps adding my username for the server as the owner of the tables rather than dbo so I have
setuser N 'myusername'
throughout the generated sql script.

Im relatively new to SQLServer and know just about enough to be dangerous and thats it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just use Enterprise Manager to backup to a "device", and then specify a filename instead of a device. This is easy, and it includes everything in the database. That's what the book authors did to distribute the database for people who use the code download.

Of course, you need to log in as an administrator: normally the "sa" user account is used for this kind of thing. It's possible that some lower priv accounts have been grated permission to do backups, but that's not common, especially in small companies.

You're going to have SERIOUS trouble if you try to script everything unless you have some more experience. It's easy to make mistakes when you try to script everything.
