    Hi all,
    I wanted to make a read only copy of an access database every night and put
    it in a different folder. Is this doable from within access or would I just
    have to write a script for this?

    Thanks,
    SA.

    Since Access uses VBA, you can write code that does just about anything you
    want. You won't be able to copy the open database but you can have another
    Access file that contains your maintenance code for working with other DBs.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
