I am using a new computer and executing an Access MDB type application on a network drive.

Do you know how to resolve the following error when using an Access 2003 MDB type application?

This Access 2003 application resides on a corporate network drive for all users to execute.
None of the other users of this application is getting this error. The only person getting this error
is somebody who happens to be executing this Access application from a new computer.
