Dear Experts,

I want to write code to give the user the ability to create a backup of an access database by pressing on a button. Must I disconnect first and then connect the database after making the copy or can I just use a file copy methode?

Greetings, Peter Kiers

A simple filecopy will suffice BUT if a user is in the process of writing (possibly reading)  then it will very likely fail.  Safest is for all users to stop using the database before making the copy.
