I am a new member who uses Access for work and leisure time activities. I am conversant with the vba feature for access and other office applications.

I am not so good at system, registry and other things related to office.

I have a problem I'd like to present. Each time I open Access, a new database appears after closing, presumably a backup. The new db has the same name of the db i worked on with a series of 1's after it. That is if I open a db called a, when I close it I have a new db a1, then a11, a111, etc. It is annoying and I'd like to turn it off. How do I do that???

Hi and welcome to the forum and your Access looks some backup option is enabled and try seeing if that is the case.

what version of ACCESS you are using?

And does this happen for every database you work on? or any specific one?

Thanks for your reply. I am using Access 2002 and it does happen with every database I work on. I tried to find a key in the registry thatmight be involved with no success. Nor could I find a relevent option.
