This control will allow user to backup SQLServer2000


First time I have problem to make utility for SQLServer2000 Backup.
After reading no of articles i finally made a form for this purpose

But while i started work on my next project i again find problem and i solve it by copy-Paste my existing code and controls to new form.
Then i decided to prepare a user control for this purpose. Now its easy to drag and drop this control on my required form.

Using the code

First make a property for connection string.

Public Property ConnectionString() As String
        Return _ConnectionString
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As String)
        _ConnectionString = value
    End Set
End Property        

Write following code on button click event

    Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(_ConnectionString) 
    Dim cm As New OleDbCommand

    cm.CommandText = "backup database master to disk='" & Me.uitxtLocation.Text & "\" & Me.uitxtFileName.Text & ".BAK '"
    cm.Connection = conn
    MsgBox("Backup done successfully")

Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox("An error occured while taking backup: " & ex.Message)
End Try
