Hi Nehal,

you can get the database backup file .bak and you can restore to destination database..you can do this through wizard but in case if you want to take database backup you can use this query to restore .bak file using SQL Query

To Restore database back file

FROM DISK = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\MyBack.BAK'

Please "Mark As Answer " if this post help you.

You can simply copy the database files(.MDF and .LDF) of your project and paste it in the client system. You can find it in Program Files->SQL Server->Data. It may vary accordingly to your system.

After replacing it you can restore it from SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

its lanNetwork connection ,in case its LANNETWORK means easy to share the database on pc to another.

Not LANNETWORK means take backup database and copy and restore to another PC.
