I am currently running Access 2002 on Windows XP pro computers within a domain for our membership database. We have some users who work remotely from home and are not part of our domain/workgroup. After Windows XP SP2 update our users outside of the domain are able to open this database file as "read only" but are not able to run queries or change data within the copy of this file that we regularly email to them. The users have tired opening the file exclusively but this does not seem to work either. I'm feeling kind of stuck here. Our remote users are not technically proficient so I need a solution whereby I make the change so that the user is able to open the file as usual. We have temporaraly uninstalled the SP2 update but I'm not really comfortable leaving their machines without this update. Can anyone help?
