I know you can back up SQL Server 2000 databases while users are using the database, and I am certain that you can do the same for SQL Server 7.0, but I want confirmation if someone does not mind.

Yes, you can do an online backup of a database on any version of MS SQL. The SQL data engine is smart enough to deal with any transactions that occur while the backup is happening.

    All versions of Sybase and MS SQL Server have been able to backup with users connected.
