My friend who is an SQL expert (I can barely spell "SQL") told me how to=
SQL Server do its own daily backup/export of the database. It even
schedules it
all by itself.

The backup file is fairly small, and ZIPs down to about 4 megs in our case,
we simply copy it to another machine that is backed up to tape on a weekly

SQL Server can be told to import this file, and we tested it by his=
it into his own SQL setup, 2000 miles away.

That's what we do here, YMMV:
