    Autorecovery

    Might be a little outlandish, but does anyone know of a way to code the autorecovery option? I have a userform which links to a database, and I would like it to back itself up every 'x' minutes. any ideas?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Drk,

    Why don't you use timer code, as you've posted in other threads to kick off the autbackup?

    If you're using the Application.Ontime already for one event (Are you only allowed one current onTime?) you might want to use it in conjunction with a counter- so if it's kicking off every second, get the backup to kick off when the counter reaches 300.

    Well, i was able to get around this using another method, now it's just an addition to the knowledge base. Thanks Geoff!

    (Because my users are cycling through rows, I am saving the database to a backup file every time they do this.)
