ACT! SQL database


Recommended Posts

We have Retrospect Pro running on an XP system used as a fileserver. I am not clear if we need to have the SQL add-in to back up the ACT! SQL database on this machine. I hope not because it will cost more than ACT!.


I have tried a restore and it seems OK but Sage say that the SQL service must be stopped before the backup or corruption can occur. The service can be stopped with a simple command line script in a batch file, but I cannot see a way of doing this in Retrospect (I think it may be possible with a script).


So can I run a batch file from Retrospect, and if so how?
