Hello all, I work for state government (corrections) and I have been writing databases for a few years. We are currently using Access 2003, with the intent of moving to 2010 by the end of the year. The set up is as follows, the database is split, with the backend being on the server and the frontend being located on the C:\OEL \OEL_ARF.mde folder of the local machine. There are many machines in our organization, with only one frontend in a local area of each machine for each user to use. Most, if not all the machines we use are what we called shared, in the respect that there are multiple users who can use each machine. Each user has a logon user ID and password to logon to the computer and then can use their logon credentials to logon to the database. Once they logoff, the next user can logon to use the machine. It used to be that all users would have Admin rights to the machine, but now everyone only has User permissions. I don't know if this is an issue or not. I also use an UploadFEVersion function to copy a new version of my database to the user’s machine when I upload a new version to the server location. I am having two issues here, but I am not convinced they are related at all. 1.) The first issue I am having is that when the new database is copied to the user’s machine, the database is shut down and restarted via code. On occasion, when the database is shut down, after the code has closed and opened the database, the user will receive a message stating the database is corrupted and needs to be repaired or it isn't a database at all. The user is asked to repair the database and everything works just fine. 2.) Because there are many users on these machines and every user has their own person space in the Documents and Setting folder, on occasion, when a user logs off the database and computer and the next user logs on, when the user tries to open the database they receive a message telling them that Microsoft Office cannot find the C:\OEL \OEL_ARF.mde. When you go to the location of the database the database is there but you cannot open the database and you cannot delete the file here. It is like there is a locking file stored in the previous user’s profile. Does anyone know if that is a known issue? If anyone can assist me with either of these two issues, I would be greatly appreciative.
