    Unanswered: copy database

    Can i make a copy of the database while i am in the database? I have tried with the formula FileCopy strSource, strDest but i get th error permission denied. Is there any other way ?

    Why? You can do it, but I doubt it can be done from inside the file you're trying to copy. I know you can copy it using Windows Explorer while it's open, I have done that lots of times.

    Perhaps you could try using the Shell method instead of the FileCopy method?
