I have been successful so far at completing the steps and understanding how the Updater is to work on the workstations but in running a test to ensure what I am changing is actually being updated to the workstations, I run into a problem. When I first copied the database to the workstations, they all were missing the following reference..outlctlx.dll but i added the reference to each workstation when I opened the database and each time I opened it was fine and didn't ask for the reference. But now when I make a change to the FE and the user clicks the icon to the updater, the following message appears and we have to keep clicking until it clears the screen: "Your Microsoft Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file outlctlx.dll version 1.0". Will the user have to add this reference everytime there is an update? Also, does the user click the updater everytime they want to enter the database? I now have two icons on the desktop, the shortcut to the updater and the shortcut to the database. Do I need to delete something? Thanks for your assistance!!
