Strange Error - "Access can’t change the working directory to ..."
Posted on 2000-03-20
"M$ Access can’t change the working directory to "F:\Projects\Files\MSS_disabled\625.” Verify that the drive is valid and the path is 260 characters or less in length."
F:\ is a mapped drive from the file Server.
"MSS_disabled" is a subdirectory that was renamed to "MSS_CBV" and has nothing to do with this or any other .mdb above that "Files" subdirectory, but I can't open ANY .mdb or even Access.exe without getting this error.
If I rename it back to "MSS_disabled", than all is well, but it shouldn't do this, and I don't want the folder called that.
What can I do to stop Access from giving this error whenever anything is opened in Access or Access itself.
This error only appears on the workstation I used to create and rename the directory.
