Restore Data Base


I backed up my data base to syncronize with the remote data base. I notice some information was lost and tryied to restore the database but i get this message:

"You do not have the authority to restore the data base. Please see your database administrator."


What could be causing the problem? What kind of authority do I need?


Any tips..


Thank you,

Re: Restore Data Base

Two things that could be causing the message:

1. You ACT! username does not have sufficient authority.  What is your authority level, from Tools > Manage Users?

2. You are running either Vista or Windows 7 and need to run ACT! 'As Administrator.  To do this: close ACT! > right click on ACT! icon > select 'Run As Administrator'


Try closing the database currently opened (File > Close), then attempt the restore (File > Restore > Database...).
