Access 2007 Backup Menu Won't Back Up My Database

Jan 23, 2008

I'm using Access 2007, with what I think is a normal database that I've built up over the past month (maybe 15 tables, <1000 records, 20 queries, 4 or 5 reports and macros). I'm not an experienced Access programmer, so I don't think I'm doing anything fancy with security settings or any other such stuff. (If I have, it's surely by accident, not by intent.)

When I try to back up the db using the simple office button -> manage -> backup method, access generates a date-stamped backup filename and opens a file save dialog for me, but it ALWAYS fails to backup the database. I always get the same error message when I click save, whether I save on my machine, or on a network drive.

"Could not use '<path to the current database dir><backname>.accdb; file already in use."

This same error occurs when I create a new blank database with a single Table1 in it, so I don't think it's my database.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I scoured the net for help, but nothing. I checked various Access forums, but nothing. So I arrive here after I've done my homework... thanks

General :: Difference In Size Between Actual Access Database And Its Backup

Aug 19, 2014

I am using Access 2007 database in work environment. When one of my colleagues tried to update some records in a table, it created a backup of the database.

The issue is that the size of the actual database is much smaller than the size of the backup. However all the data are present and I don't think any data has been deleted.

But I don't know why there is a difference in size?

Some of the tables in the database are linked from MS SQL Server.

General :: Automatic Backup Of Access Database With Date Added To End Of File Path

Jul 28, 2014

Just wanted to confirm which is the best way to create an automatic back up of a access DB. (Split DB, backing up the BE - Access2010)

Firstly I was thinking of just creating a batch file to copy the file to a new source directly with a task scheduler set up.

Ideally I'd like it to run daily and have the date of the back up added to the end of the filepath.

Backup BE Database

Jul 6, 2005

I recently created a database with an FE and BE, and I want to be able to back up the BE from the FE. In the FE, I added a menu item "Back up database...", and it works good for the FE, but I want it to back up the BE, where the data is located. The reason that I like the menu item is that it opens a "Save Backup As" dialog box, and it also adds the date to the name of the database. Also it will be easier for the people that are using the db.

Backup Database As

Jul 10, 2006

what would possibly cause a "Backup Database As" dialogue box to appear? it's the same as the "save as" box and allows you to save a copy of the access file you're working on but it says "Backup Database As" at the top.

it seems to come up periodically and im not sure what might be causing it.

Backup Database Is 'read Only'

Feb 13, 2006

Hi All,

I created a database in Access and of course password protected the backend version. As a matter of course I backed up the mdb to cd in case of emergency.

Our network has been taken down due to some virus being bought in by a laptop user so I wanted to reinstall the mdb from the cd to my c: drive.

The problem is that the file is saying that it is 'Read Only' which I think is down to the password protection i put on there.

Is there a way I can get round the security?

I promise I am not a hacker!

Backup Database Online ?

Jun 12, 2006

I read a lot of threads and some KB articles before this, but am still confused.

Can a copy of the BE database be made on the Server while users are logged on ? Max No. of users is 7.

Does copying a BE while work is going on lead to corruption in the database.
Right now i make a copy of the database thru code and then compress the copy for a backup.

Find Command In Access In One Report To Search Throughout Whole Database

Dec 7, 2014

Is there a way to use the find command in access in one report to search throughout the whole database. For instance, I am designing a database that in a report it shows the number identifier of an item, and the actual detailed information is located in a separate form. What I want it to do is to be able to find the detailed information from a command within the report that only has the number identifier.

Search Employees Backup Database?

Dec 16, 2011

Attached i have a Database with 3 Tables.

-Table MA's. is the just a table were you can select if an Analyst is at the office or not. so if the check box is selected the analyst is available.

-Table Backups. We have Alias which is a reference code to a supplier the 1 Analyst and then Backup 1 and backup 2

-Table suppliers are just de supplier details.

what i whould need is when in the MA's table an Analyst is not selected a macro or query should search for backup 1 and replace it. when the backup 1 is not available as wel than backup 2 should be put in place.

When no backups are availeble then a message can put in the cell like"No Backup Available'.

This result can be put in a new table named. Decksplit with then the Supplier Alias, Supplier Name, Analyst

Making Daily Backup Of Database?

Oct 29, 2013

As my database is growing and hold more and more data i want to make a daily backup to the local hard disk (it works on a network now) automatically.The way i want it to work is as follows :

When a user quits the application i want to check if there is a copy already existing with the date of today.

If it does it skips the copy process and just quits.

If it doesn't, i want it to make a backup in a directory. if the directory doesn't exist it must be made.

The backup file name must hold the date of today off course.

I realize that i have to have a procedure to delete obsolete (outdated) backups as well, but ill worry about that later.

Off course Ive tried this a few times, otherwise i wouldnt ask it here. But i seem to fail every time..

General :: Backup BACK-END Of A Split Database

Jan 24, 2014

I am trying to use VBA to backup the BACK-END of a split database (so I can automatically archive selected data). If I use FileCopy I get a message that the BACK-END database has not been found.Obviously I could 'unlink' the BACK-END, copy it and 're-link' it..Is it possible to copy the BACK-END tables(not just the links) into the FRONT-END and get at them that way?

Modules & VBA :: How To Create New Lock File Within Current Database

Apr 7, 2015

What I'd like to do is have an "export button", where the OnClick event, exports a single table into a new accde file. This would allow the end users to zip this file up and send it to me.

Because of all sorts of stupidity, I have no network capability and must send data back and forth via email.

I have digressed to a replication table that needs to be uploaded, once data is entered by the users...

Because the files can get relatively large (for emailing purposes), I am trying to figure out how I can get just one table from them vs. sending the whole application file back to me... It's pretty vital that they not be able to edit the table because that could really mess up the process.

So any way to create a new lock file from within the current Db?
