Hi Alan
Agree again that the task is not easy. Agree the task would be
tricky. But we can't answer negatively for this reason. You have
likely guessed I am asking this question as its related to a
discussion a day ago on IBOAdmin. After making a backup of a DB file
at <server>:<path> I want to then delete <net_path.fileA> and then
rename <net_path.fileB>. If there is no nice function to do what I
want I'll have to ask the operator to show me where the database file
directory is. The operator will then get laugh loudly, "All these
months your program has been managing my data and you don't know
where the db file is?"
