    I am having a problem with a standard feature of Access. It is under Tools,
    Analyzer, Documenter. There are a number of settings to select the type of
    documentation that is requested. However, only the default settings allow
    the program to produce the output documentation. It is much more than I am
    trying to get out. By clicking the desired settings in the radio buttons, an
    error message "Application-defined or Object-defined Error" appears. When
    logged in as administrator this error does not appear, but as a user it does.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, Marty.
    The solution depends upon the operating system, the version of Access, the
    Windows security permissions assigned during installation and during use, and
    where the files were installed to.

    I'll hazard a guess as to which of these is interfering in your situation
    and tell you that the directory where the user's copy of the ACWZUSRT.MDT
    file is located needs to have "Full Control" Windows security permissions for
    any user who is not a Windows Administrator. The user also needs security
    permissions to read the relevant Windows Registry entries.

    We really can't be more helpful than this without knowing the important
