newbie Jet database question

 newbie Jet database question

To copy an Access database, you could create the database how you want it
with no data.  Then just copy that database wherever you want.  Use the
FileCopy in VB.  

FileCopy Source.MDB, Destination.MDB

If you always want to store the MDB file in the same directory as the
application executable, then you can use App.Path to get the directory name
of the MDB file to open.

Hope that helps,
