WARNING:  Some of the following instructions may not be best practice.    This is a personal database so I can afford to take some shortcuts and not do thorough research.  If you do use these tips and sample code in production check back in a week and a month to see if there are any changes or comments.


I wanted to create a method of backing up a personal SQL Server database from within Access.   In a production environment you'd have tasks which ran on a regular basis, i.e. at midnight or whatever, that would do this.  But here I might update some records every few days and wanted to do this on my schedule.
Note that, as the names of the stored procedures indicate, I will be modifying these as I add more functionality such as database checks, log truncation, etc.
