Hello there.
I have an Access Database thats apparently not working. When first running it, it gives me this error message.

"Could not read definitions; no read definitions permission for table or query "Equity Contact1"

What could this message mean.
Note: 'Equity Contact1' is a name of a query.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a corrupt database. Try importing all of your objects into a new database and see if it works then.

You see, the database is in a network drive, where it runs quite smoothly from my desktop but not my boss's desktop. He's the one getting the above error message. What should I do ?

I just now ran into the same thing. The only thing I did to correct it was map a drive to the network share and open the database from that.
