I have a XP computer acting as a file server and a 2000pro acting as a client.
The 2000pro computer can access the shared XP drive. I tested the file share by creating and writing a text file on the XP drive from the 2000pro computer. But when a program on the 2000pro client tries to connect to a MS Access file with ADO 2.8, I get no where. :tazz:

I have made sure that all users have share read/write access and the Acces file has read/ write access for all users too.

The file share limit to connections is set to more then 5 useres.
The MS firewall on XP is turned off.

Any ideas as to what is going on?

Try this for kicks.
If you make a copy of the file, can you access the copy?
