    I did some research on this and found this discussion which talks about Microsoft removeing the ability to do this level of a restore in v7.  https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/how-restore-single-sql-table-using-backup-exec-86

    and on a side note since I was looking...here is a document talking about using Netbackup to Restore SQL from Backup Exec images and some of the limitations    (such as 'sqlTable backups cannot be restored, though they are included in the backup image and can be selected for restore. If you try to restore a table, the job fails with the error "unsupported object was selected for restore')   http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO69725  

    Hope this helps
