    Unanswered: pointing to System file-system.mda

    I have a really tough question.

    How can I get Access to join to the SYSTEM file on a network drive?
    I went through the procedures in Access Workgroup Administrator and tried to point Access to the SYSTEM.mda file, I received an Access is denied message in the Workgroup Administrator dialog box.

    Could anybody give me some help?

    You will need to have read and modify permissions on the file to get it to work.

    pointing to System file-system.mda

    Error Message: " Access is denied"
    while attempting to join Q:\SYSTEM.MDA

    I have joined to the SYSTEM.MDA file @ my computer before without any problems. This occurred @ an user's workstation.
    If it is not the permission problem, what else do you think it could be?

    Does the system file has to be SYSTEM.MDW for Access2000?
    We are currently using a SYSTEM.MDA file created few versions ago.
    But that doesn't explain the error message.
