Hi,

I am using Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 connection to load and save my database to file.

I have created datatable in a dataset. and I would like to save this datatable/dataset to a new file created using todays date as the filename.

e.g. checks if the file exist, then otherwise create a new file called "14-07-2004.mdb"

I guess the checking if the file exist is easy, but I don't how to create new file in ADO.net and using the date as a filename.

Any help would be appreciate!

many many thanks.
