    how do you save an .mdb database at a set schedule? Say 5 times a day. Is it possible with the timer or do you need something else?

    If you purely want to create back ups I'd use the Backup tool which lurks menacingly under the System Tools folder. This will allow you to schedule regular back ups, whether it does them more frequently than daily though I don't know. If it only allows daily you may be able to combine a bcakup package with the ScheduledTasks tool (also in System Tools).

    You could write an APP to do this but VB probably isn't the greatest language with which to do it.

    It's a small world but I wouldn't like to paint it.
