    Unanswered: Cannot link database tables when using network drive?

    I am not sure what is going on here but I have no problem linking to the separate database tables when I link with the C drive .mbd database but when I try to link to the same database file through a mapped network drive which is shared, the table don't show up?

    I did not build this access database but have used it for 10 yrs and have rebuilt my network many times as new computers were needed.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Running a runtime version of Access 2007
    XP pro operating systems
    Ethernet connected network
    3 computers networked
    Tried several options of firewall settings to no avail

    Thanks again

    how are you defining the mapping
    are you using drive assignments or UNC
    in my experience its always better to use UNC

    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
