Can anyone tell me how to backup my database if the backup link is broken?
I want to upgrade the software but the ACT 2008 I have won't install. I don't want to buy 2010 if I can extract the data.

It says there is an SQL problem and it can’t back up. It says the backup database is terminating abnormally. PRC_Maint_BackupDB: Error executing Database backup statement. D20100426T173238.BAK.
Thanks for any ideas!

There are a couple of known reasons for this error, review this article to determine if it applies to your situation: Error Executing Database Backup Statement
1. Database saved to Desktop
2. Apostrophe in file path for database
The article describes the steps to manually move your database to another location. These same steps can be used to copy/backup your database.

Thanks so much for your response. I received an error message when I tried to open the article. Would you mind sending me a different link or way to view it.
I really appreciate your help!
