    Unanswered: Backup

    I have one user account on an SQL Server, and one Database, and I dont have access to the server. Is there a way I can backup the DB, can an SQL DB be turned into a file of some sort?

    Where did you want to backup to? The same disk? Accross a network? To tape?

    If you just want to export a text file, you can create a DTS process that will run daily (nightly) that will export your database as a csv. CSVs are comma-delimited text files that are easily importable back into SQL Server or most any other DB-type apps, including Excel.
