EOF file error when using docmd.gotorecord,,acnew

i am workin on a access database that works fine on all users except for one pc where when the line of  docmd.gotorecord,,acnew is executed from a button it produces a EOF file error and doesn't create a new record - any ideas?

it sounds like the form is not permitting the user to add new records. Make sure that the user has full read/write permissions into the folder where the database resides.

So this is a network issue then? I'll have a look and see - thanks

Hey KidAA

I think what Shane means is that the file folder on the network can be set with access rights.
If your user does not have rights to the folder (even if he has full access to the DB), the db will not be able to add the record.

I note that you state:

<<...works fine on all users except for one pc

The above solution is a user-based issue.

If User A can work the db on one PC, but not on your suspect PC, this will probably be down to either an incomplete Access installation/missing .dll files, or a clash with a different operating system.
