Can the scheduled backups be set to include all tables in the database, even those that did not exist at the time the backup job was created? I'm afraid I will forget to change the job as we create new tables and thereby not get the new ones backed up? If this is possible, how do I do it? Thanks!

Well, yes. Please see image.

Attached File  alltables.jpg   42.24KB   12 downloads

In that case the XML-jobfile will read


<tables all="yes">


.. and note that no specific tables are listed. The job will backup the tables (and no other objects) that exist at the time of backup.

Thanks! I should have realized that. For some reason I thought it was recording all the table names individually in the xml file.
