I was doing Microsoft Access training last week and the client wanted us to look at making changes to their database. I said we needed to make a copy then if we did something that they decided they didn’t want, we could easily get back to the original.
Being helpful, one of the attendees told me she had made a copy for me.
I started making changes and then decided I wanted to look at the original. However, I then found that there was only one copy! What had happened was that she had copied the desktop shortcut to the database, rather than making a copy of the database itself!
Luckily we weren’t too far down the line and all was well.
