Is it good idea to repair sql file?


Bulk Logged will not help you in this situation. Your transaction log is growing because you are performing large transactions. In simple mode, the log is truncated after a checkpoint.
Check these site: http://www.sql.recoverytoolbox.com/ & download demo Recovery Toolbox for SQL Server.
Depending on how you are loading your data, you may need to break it up into smaller chunks. Make sure you are not loading all the data in one large transaction.

restoring files from the database


I suggest you use the Enterprise manager (gui tool to manage SQL).
Restoring a single table is not an option.
You can however restore a file or filegroup.
Make sure to backup before you start and NOT to restore database to its original name or original file location, to avoid acidents.
Normally you will have databases with only 2 files: the data at its Primary file group, and log file.
You may wish to create a new file group and move tables to the new group by recreating them there and exporting data from old table to new table. Then recreate indexes. This may prove to be complex as all tables and indexes have unique names and can't coexist with exact duplicate of them.

oh yea..... did I say backup?
well just in case backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup
but dont overwrite that backup

Viewing ms Sql Server database on Access


Are you familiar with "Linking" tables in Access? In Access: File --> Get External Data --> Link Tables. This will bring up a dialog box which allows you to browse to your SQL server and select the table you want.
