Access backup

I have one question, Is it possible to take daily backup of Access database in any folder automatically at any specific time e.g 9pm at night. This is just to make sure that data is safe and nobody moved the current folder or deleted the folder where the system is present(SO in case anything goes wrong with the system).

Can't backup Db
For some unexplained reason, Access won't let me backup my db. It's worked fine for months, but now when I try to backup my db I get the following message: "could not use <filename>, file already in use". I'm the only user and I've closed the db, waited and then reopened and try to backup again and still can't. Hope someone can help me solve this


Automatic backup?
I am relatively new to Access 2007. During the development, occasionally I find a backup file on my drive "Name_of_DB"_Backup.accdb.

What are the criteria for the thing making a backup by itself? I think I got one or two after crashing Access, but also without a crash. Is there some obscure setting? For I most certainly did not create those backups myself.

This article describes about Text File backup for MS Access Database. Working with MS Access and manipulating Tables and data backup is a common procedure.

Restore From BackUp
Having split my DB, I have now made a button that backsup/copies the BE to a backup folder. It copies the database name and puts the date of the backup on the end (GundogTraining_be 18 01 12). What I need to do now is create an Import function. Where the user would select the button which would open the folder "BackUp" they would then choose the file to import.And the file would be imported into its "Working" directory and automatically renamed ie. GundogTraining_be

Not really sure how to go about this, this is what I am using to open the BackUp Dir, but after this I'm stuck!

Private Sub btn_Import_Click()
Shell "EXPLORER.EXE C:\Gundog Training Databases\BackUp\", vbNormalFocus


Search employees backup database
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

Database Daily Backup
If your Database is installed on a Network then a regular server backup is done on a Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly basis by the Network Team and kept in Fire-proof Cabinets away from the Computer Center. If something happens to your database, like database corruption or deletion by mistake etc., you can always send a request to the Computer Department giving details of location, filename and safe backup date from which you would like to restore from. This may take a few hours to few days to get it done because the backup tapes or other mediums must be transported back from its storage location before they is able to complete your request.
