I have a vb app that needs to access an Access 2000 database on a network controlled Read Only directory. The admin will not allow me to set any directory to read/write, so that is not an option. According to the accepted answer at
I would not be able to programatically open this database. I only want to read values from it, that's it. If this is not possible in a read only directory, how is it possible that I can open that same read only database in the read only directory by just clicking on it and opening it in Access? Should't I not be able to open it either if it needs that ldb file? There's got to be a way to systematically program this! Thanks!
