Greeting bro's.

Is there a way to automatically backup an access database to a different location by a specific time?

Thanks in advance.

CODE

Copy "\\ServerName\ShareName\DBName.mdb" "\\BackupComputer\BackupFolder\DBName.mdb"

Put the above line in a batch file and run the batch through Task Scheduler. Of course, change the names first.
