Backup BE Database (1 Viewer)


Registered User
I recently created a database with an FE and BE, and I want to be able to back up the BE from the FE. In the FE, I added a menu item "Back up database...", and it works good for the FE, but I want it to back up the BE, where the data is located. The reason that I like the menu item is that it opens a "Save Backup As" dialog box, and it also adds the date to the name of the database. Also it will be easier for the people that are using the db.
