can't open mdb file on network drive
Posted on 2004-10-28
I have one PC on a network with 10 others - this one machine cannot read any mdb files on our shared projects drive.
It's a Windows sbs 2003 server with XP Pro PC's Access is version 2002
If I copy the mdb file locally it works fine. I can load any mdb file from any other network drive except from my projects drive and this problem occurs on 1 machine in teh 10 on the network.I can load word or XL files ok on the projects drive.
When I use explorer to launch the file it comes up with a File Downlaod open/save option with a warning about opening unknown files. I continue to open, launch Access and it will not open the file as it tells me teh file is outside my intranet or on an untrusted site.
I have tried all options, it's not an ldb issue, may not be down to access but this may be a network issue but I though I'd try it here first.
