Hi Anthony, I did just that - created a full database backup with the Enterprise Manager. The client didn't know what to do with it because I created a file with no extension. My fear was that since they never created the DB on their server, the Restore option in Enterprise Manager wouldn't display the backup to use. When I did a test restore overhere, you had to select what database you wanted to display backups for, and I assumed they wouldn't have that database to choose from since it never existed on their end... what are your thoughts on that? Anyways, I appreciate the help! Thanks! adam bread_man "Ein halber Laib ist besser als gar kein Brot." > You did fine if you used the Backup options in Enterprise Manager.
