Prevent SQLServer database resetting on upgrade

100+
P: 116
Hi

I have an application that will be distributed. It contains an SQLServer database.

When users download a new version of the software, does the database in the old version on their machine get overwritten by the blank database in the new version?

Or, if it's saved on the user's computer as a separate piece of software, is there a clever way to copy the other database data over to the new version? Or is it just a case of having the user save the data to Excel or something then give them a way to import it?

Many thanks.
