How would I go about backing up a database from a remote server to my local server? I am using SQL Enterprise manager. I have tried DTS (import,export) but get errors. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Thanks k4gdw for the great step by step instructions. It worked perfectly.
I can now stop banging my head against the wall!

If your database is large, the fastest, easiest, least intrusive, and most robust solution is to just use the built in SQL Server Backup\Restore interface through the UI or through T-SQL Backup\Restore commands.

Thanks Jason, the only problem is that my host will not allow the Backup\Restore so I must you DTS. I have no knowledge of Transitional SQL either. Thanks though!

Copying all data on a large db might cost you a lot of bandwith. My favorite tool is sql bundle from red gate (www.red-gate.com), which lets you synchronize your db structure and db contents. The developer toolkit contains
a command line utility you can schedule with windows task scheduler. Its a big expensive, but its a very flexible tool ;)
