    Automatically createing Backup.mdb file

    Hi All,



    We have created a ms access application for our testing purpose, there is a enhancement to our application under test , so to add corresponding changes to ms access application we are making necessary changes to the .mdb file but when we are saving the file automatically "Back up.mdb" file is created .

    Could some one help me on this one how to make necessary changes to the existing .mdb file with out creating the "Back up" one ?

    I don't have ac2003 but I believe it is an option under Tools>Options or maybe Database Utilities.

    As I said, I do not have ac2003 so I can not give you exact instructions. You may need to wait for someone with ac2003 to respond with more specific details.
