I have an application in VB and using mdac 2.6 and Jet 4.0 when I connect to the databases across the network everthing is fine.

The issue is if one of the databases for any reason becomes disconnected from the network. I have on error clauses but this is not working.

I followed thru doing some debugging and found that as soon as the database is disconnected my app freezes.

I tried doing this using Explorer and found the same thing happened, even explorer just hung up.

I have tried it on Win 95 and Win XP and the result is the same.

Does anybody know of a setting to help prevent this, I am aiming for databases to be turned off and to ignore them if they are not connected but I just can't seem to get around this.

Thank you in anticipation.
