Does this user have the same access rights to the folder(s) ?

The user is part of the same security group 'Database', so I allow them them full access for that group.

What are the (key)fields the linkmasterfields are referring to ?
Perhaps the userid of the user ? In such a case make sure data for the user is available.

Hello,

I don't see how this can be related (link fields and system registry). The only path would be via VB or (less likely) via Jet. In any case, it's a more general problem, which cannot be solved from within Access.

Try to search for this message on microsoft.com, where you'll find a few articles such as this one:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269383/en-us/
But none specifically about Access.

If this particular computer has Access installed (not only the runtime), try to open "tools / references" and see if you get the same error. Normally, you should not be able to compile your VB project as long as this isn't resolved.

Good luck! Hope you won't have to reinstall from scratch.

When the form opens it looksat the winlogon for the user to get a userid based on tblSalesman's findings. The setup has not switched over to a domain setup from a workgroup setup, could this be the problem?

I have noticed that if I make the user in question a memor of administrators in the domain, she can enter the db fine. Relegate her back to the usual position it all starts again.

Hello,

This seems closely related to the problem in the Knowlege Base link above: the user (and thus VB) does not have the needed read rights on a given key of the registry. There are some suggestions to identify which key that is -- that's the hard part, and you can then follow the steps outlined in the article to grant these rights.

However, it doen't seem simple.

Happy hacking!

Did you try to define a new user like the others for this user ?
Somewhere the access rights are playing tricks...
