    Problem sharing database from windows xp to windows 7

    1. If the Windows7 machine is installed with MS-Office2003 then open Access2003.
    2. Select Workgroup Administrator from Tools Menu.
    3. Select Join Option and browse to the MSHOME.MDW file, select and open it.

    You must get a message like 'You have successfully joined the Workgroup Administration file'.
