Recently I modified a database, which was really slow, to have linked documents rather than embedded documents for each record in an ole control. This worked in one of our environments but did not work in the next one for the same app. Got an error stating that the object is empty and to choose the <insert object> option. In our development environment the insert object option from the menu (or right clicking on the OLE control) is available but not in the next one(grayed out). What properties of the database determine this or is this a file level security issue?
