wenchang,

Your response is greatly appreciated.  It is refreshing now, and this is what I did based on your information:  I unchecked "Save data with Report", removed the password from my Access database, and I did not check "Verify on every print".  This is the only way it worked.  I was curious on how I can still keep the Access database password protected and make the refresh work--it wouldn't work unless I removed the password.  In the future I want to migrate this Access database to SQL Server and I am sure that I will run into problems with password at that juncture.  Your comments are are greatly appreciatted.

Thank you . . . . daverey
