Since you intend to make a backup copy of the database, then the simplest and fastest way is to use the FileCopy statement:
FileCopy SourceFile, DestinationFile
Both SourceFile and DestinationFile are the full path/filename of the source and destination files.
Make sure that the database is closed before copying it.

Since you want to backup you must be having a data control for the existing databse, make this into a control array. ie. if the name of the datacontrol is DataControl1,make the index propertity as 0 and use the following code

Load DataControl1(1)
and set the required properties like the connection,databse etc.
Hope this helps

You forget, that the database file is opened by Data Control and I can't close it and open (maybe you can help :-).
