what are you actually trying to send?
you have sent the shortcut, which would work if the recipient had the same office installation
had the same db stored on the same location
had the same workgroupfile in the same location
if you want to send the shortcut to the db, then I would expect instead of a drive reference a network URL
eg inplace of c:\db1.mdb I would expect to see soemthing like
\\accessman2\db1.mdb (assuming of course that your pc was called "accessman2"
but is that what you are doing, are you trying to get the 'other' person to access your copy of db1 or open a copy / local version of the file
should you even be letting someone else open your copy of the file, shouldn't it reside on a network accessible drive.
I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
