I'm trying too attach a database but am getting the following error:

cannot be opened because it is version 661. This server supports version 612 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported.( using ms sql server 2005 and vs2008 )

so my question is
How to copy out the data from that database ? , i don't want upgrade or downgrade versions.
