There is a problem validating your database


Let’s go over them in the order of their importance in validating that the backups you have are good.

The first thing you can do to ensure you have a good backup is to include CHECKSUM in the WITH clause of your backups, like this: The CHECKSUM is a mathematical construct of a fixed length that gets generated from the page of data.

This is a good way to validate the media as you do the backup.

A validation rule is one way to restrict input in a table field or a control (such as a text box) on a form.For more information about data types, field sizes, and input masks, see the article Introduction to data types and field properties.You can define validation rules for table fields and for controls on forms.I think that one of the reasons that we don't hear much about database testing is because it is a relatively new idea within the data community.Many traditional data professionals seem to think that testing is something that other people do, particularly test/quality assurance professionals, do.Symptoms of data integrity issues can include: After the Validation process is finished, you will see the Data_Log appear in a Notepad window. Quicken saves a backup copy of this file before you Validate.
