We have a multi-work station network. The primary program for all users is a MS Access 2003 database. Each workstation has a front-end of the program linked to a network drive where the back-end of the database resides.

All users are using a copy from a template of the same front-end.

2 users have begun to experience the following error:

I've determined that when this error occurs, the program has 'lost' its link with the back-end. By navigating out of the program with the error back to the main menu, then back into the program that had generated the error, usually the error message will go away. I AM NOT leaving the MS Access database, merely navagting around in the database program.

All other users continue to operate without a problem. Most of the users are MS Vista Business, (including the two workstations that are failing).

One of the workstations is getting increasing numbers of error messages, to the point that it is fruitless to continue.

Any suggestions?

I've had problems with Vista on a network as well. I think it's because the security in Vista does not trust network connections unless you continually re-establish them. (odd, but true). Map a network drive to the server and have your stations activate that map by opening it. Vista may then allow your Access to work...

Hope this helps...
