Batch files & Access2003

  GRFT 07:20 06 Apr 2006

Ever since the days of Windows 3.1 (now Win XP Home) I've backed up my data files on a daily/weekly basis, including Access, using MS DOS batch files. This is a simple, elegant and effective way of performing this essential function; or at least it was until I upgraded to Access2003. Now my Access .mdb files (converted from Access97) are just not recognized.

Is there something I've missed? Or can it really be true that Office2003 & MSDOS are incompatible?

If the latter then I think I'll uninstall 2003 and go back to 97.

Has anyone any ideas on this problem?

Many thanks.
