What version of Access?

Have you tried repairing and compacting the database?

Are you sure that the file permissions are OK.  These can vary from the directory permission if directory permissions have been changed at some time

version Access97 and Winnt4.0. Yes, I have full control to all under "security, Permission, and directory". One thing I noticed is that I don't have the permission tab one the folder containg the files. It only has the "General" and "Security". Here is the structure:  

Permission; alluser - full control, Sercurity-Permission; alluser - full control...\pub\share\access\company.mdb  

Hope you can provide me the answer. Thank you very much for your response.

The problem now is a little more narrowed. It is just the database problem and not network related. I can run the application on just the station that created the database. If I move it to any other stations, I still get the "disk and network error". so, basically now I can ONLY run the application with THE SYSTEM THAT CREATED THE DATABASE WORK.  The database is in "shared" mode. Can someone help me ?  Many thanks in advance.

Do you use attached tables? If yes, the path to the linked tables has to be modified.

yes, but the funny thing is I can run the Database on the original system through the network. Can it be my ODBC driver? Some parts of the Database was imported from Access95.   Thanks in advance.

You have to duplicate the linked path just like the original. For example, from your original system, you access the database through m:\...\..\your database.mdb then, from another system, you have to access the database just like that: m:\...\..\your database.mdb

Sorry for being so ignorant, but I still get this problem eventhough I've put the database in the other systems hard drive. I've also used "Repaired and Compact Database".  The other thing is  I'm using COMPANY.CODE to run COMPANY.MDB . I should have mentioned this too earlier. Thanks in advance again.

TUVI, you're right! The link database table's path was the problem.  Please tell me how I can award you the points. Thank you very much for your help.

Alright, here is my answer so that you can grade me: (same as the one I commented on Saturday, July 18 1998 - 02:57AM)

You have to duplicate the linked path just like the original. For example, from your original system, you access the database through m:\...\..\your database.mdb then, from another system, you have to access the database just like that: m:\...\..\your database.mdb
