    Since an Access database is just an mdb file, you could use the methods in the System.IO.File namespace to copy it.

    Yes thanks TimLBig Smile

    i just find a better way

    + backup Database

    Function Chomlong_Database(ByVal [sSourceFile] As String, ByVal [sDestination] As String) As String


    Dim JRO As JRO.JetEngine

    JRO = New JRO.JetEngine

    JRO.CompactDatabase("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & [sSourceFile] & ";Jet OLEDB:Database Password=hello", "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & [sDestination] & ";Jet OLEDB:Database Password=hello")

    Return "True"

    Catch ex As Exception Return ex.Message

    Exit Function

    End Try

    End Function


    + Restore Database

    i accept you to copy file database to over write old database

     Thanks a lot ..

    Yes - that looks like a better solution since you are also compacting the database with that command.
