AutoCAD .dwg files as Access '95 OLE
Posted on 1997-08-03
I'm trying to link AutoCAD .dwg files within a table
under Access '95. Most of these files will be read-only
and are marked with that attribute.
When I try to link a file (Insert Object, Link, Browse)
and select a file, my system locks up. I CTL-ALT-DEL and
kill the AutoCAD alert task, then control returns to my
Access screen. When I once again (Insert, Link, Browse)
and select the same file, it works beautifully. But I
don't know why. Has anyone else had problems linking files?
I don't seem to have this problem with Excel or Word files.
Thanks for any and all help!
