    I have been creating a simple DB with Access 2002 (2000 file format). It's
    been stored on my C drive while I have been working on it.

    Now it's ready for use and I want to "move" it to a place where it will be
    backed up nightly (user share on Network).

    What are the steps to do this? Any help appreciated.

    There is nothing special you have to do here.

    The appcation is just mdb file, and you an copy that file to the server.

    However, if you are going beyond just backing up the file, and plan to have
    MORE then one user in the application, then yours is different question.

    If you plan to have more then one user at the same time, then you are
    talking about deploying an application, ,and not just a nightly backup...

    If you are talking about deployment, and multi-user, then you need to split
    your application. You can read about how this works here:

    Great. I exited Access, moved the file, created a shortcut for my desktop.
    This seemed to do the trick. Thanks!
