    Error When Backing Up

      Error When Backing Up

      Your post

      I had set an automatic backup schedule to run at the end of every day and it was working fine up until about a week ago.  I am getting the following error:

      Schedule "11PM backup" aborted; no open databases to operate on.

      As far as I know (granted im not here at 11pm) the database should be open.  I dont see any reason why it would be closed. Does it close itself after a period of inactivity which prevents the backup from running?  Either way I dont see how this should interfere with the backup.

      Any help is appreciated, thank you!

          I think I just realized what the problem is.  Renaming the database confuses the scheduler when a specific database is selected for backup.  Not sure why I didn't think of this sooner, I guess I assumed that filemaker would be smart enough to know the name of the database in question changed.
