Yes the BACKUP DATABASE TSQL command.

Here's the Microsoft definition of it:

It can be issued from any software that can connect to SQL server. That could be and ADO or ADODB connection/command from VB/VB.NET/C#/C++, etc. There are many way to get there. Then you issue that simple text command and SQL Server performs some sort of backup.

Thanks!

I do have one, but I started migrating it from and ASP.NET site to PHP and it is currently still under construction at the moment. If you were interested in the Christianity portion of my bio, I'd refer you to this site that I did: www.tridm.org.
