2 questions, backup and auto closing

Hi Everybody,

 

1. I want to backup file that is located on the server daily, let's say at 11 PM. Due to company network restrictions we can open the file only one at the time using local FMs.

Sharing doesn't work--file is not visible when somebody opens it. Maybe there is a way to see which user account has it opened. I know, I know -- use a server version of FM

but for the reason above can't get our IS to install the server FM.

 

Q1: Is there a way to write the backup script that won't overwrite exixting backup but just create a new backup file with date in the name. We want to keep all backups.

 

2. Q2: What would be the script to close that file let's say after idling of 20 minutes, or if the iddling cannot be dedected just pop the message: "The file will close in 3 minutes"

and then close it.

 

Can't think of anything...

 

Best,

 

Tom
