MS ACCESS Project will be opened read-only
Posted on 2010-09-07
I have a client with a Windows XP Pro PC that is running a custom Access project. It is being used by an oil deliver company. When I click on the icon and login to the application, I get this:
"The Microsoft Access project "PLTS" will be opened read-only because one of the files is marked read-only or you specified that you wanted to open this file read-only.
Prior to this, the form opened. Now nothing except the error message. I can then close the application.
I checked the folder and all the files seem to be there.
Everything worked fine up until they lost the internet last week. When it was restored the app stopped working.
I should add that this application looks to the MLS site (multiple listing site) to get its information on people buying and selling homes so that they can download the information into the app and then give the people who have just moved in to the sales people who will call on them to see if they want to have their company provide oil and a service contract.
So perhaps when the app opens it is looking for an internet connection to the site and is not getting it so that it errors out?
And then maybe not.
thanks in advance/
