I have created a program and packaged it in Runtime for a client. I understand that Runtime has limited capabilities but the client needs to be able to back up their program and I can't figure a way for them to do that with a menu change or even a macro. I don't want them hunting to folders to find the actual file to copy off to a flash drive because they could screw up and delete something. Is there an option in Runtime to manage the database or back up the whole database that I am missing?:eek:

Just use a backup program such as FBackup. This will backup the folder that the database is in.

Or you can use the Microsoft Scheduler to make a copy of the program.
I have posted a database that the scheduler opens and it copies the database in to a Folder for whatever day of the week the computer is "started" on.

Nah, we can always drag the file to a flash drive or something.There are plenty of ways to back it up externally, that isn't the problem. What I was looking for was a way within the program to back it up. In the full Access program you can select "manage databases" and then there is a back up option that date stamps the copy. I was wondering if Runtime had some built in back up feature that I am missing. It doesn't really come with instructions. I was hoping someone had located a feature like this.
