I'm trying to backup an ADP database using SQL Talk. The database name is pay4win and the server name is fred3. This is the script I have in SQL Talk:

connect pay4win user/password;
set server fred3;
use 1;
backup snapshot to c:\backup\pay4win on server;
disconnect pay4win;

I get the following error though: Error: Database name not configured

Does anyone have any idea? I just want to create a script and then create a task to run it every night so the database is backed up.


RE: Backup

Please disregard my previous post as I figured out what was wrong.

RE: Backup

Hi Ken,

I hope you can help me. I am using SQLBase 7 database. I have a PROD database and a DEV database. The data in PROD database is till date.

1.When i try to copy the .dbs file from PROD to DEV, i find that DEV database is not updated. Is there anything else i have to do after copying the .dbs file to DEV from PROD??
2. I took backup snapshot of PROD database. When i try to restore the DEV database from the the PROD SNAPSHOT, the system does not let me. However, when i do the restore from DEV SNAPSHOT, the system does it fine. My aim is to update the DEV database with PROD database.

Thanks in advance.....

RE: Backup

What change to your SQLTalk script did you make to get it to work?
