"Saving" a database?

    Is it possible to "save" an mdb file? I want to save my database to a new
    location but when I click on File->Save I only get an option to save
    whichever form, query or report is highlighted. There doesn't appear to be
    an option to save the whole mdb file.
    Thanks
    Tony

    Hi Tony - no, can't do it that way. You have to Copy and Paste out at the
    Operating System. Not sure why, but so it is. Yours Dika

    Strangely, though I have had some issues with my favorite database over the
    years, copying and pasting to make a copy has never seemed to me to be a big
    deal.

    I agree Larry it's not such a big deal but I wonder why File - save isn't
    available in Access when it is in most other applications. I don't think
    I've ever come across a Windows application where it wasn't available. But
    as you say no big deal

    I think the difference is that an Access database is a different KIND
    of object than a Word document or a PowerPoint presentation. It's a
    *container* for all sorts of other objects - tables, forms, queries,
    etc. - each of which can be saved, modified, or deleted independantly
    of the container as a whole.
