MS Access 2003 - shared database keeps coming up as read-only for 1 server
Posted on 2010-11-19
We have 3 Citrix servers all of which have Microsoft Office 2003. For about a week now, one of the Citrix servers that tries to access a shared MS Access database for people to update is now coming up with a pop/error saying the database is coming up as read-only.
You must have a database open to create custom toolbars, and the database can't be read-only.
I have rebooted the machine several times to disconnect anyone that may have kept the database open for an extended period of time without closing it. I have tried re-installing MS Access 2003, not all of Office 2003 because I didn't think it was necessary since it was Access coming up with the pop-up only. After doing so, I rebooted and re-installed, still get the error.
Is this starting to seem more like a permissions issue on the Citrix server? I have tried Googling this issue and I could not find a similar issue to mine.
The other Citrix servers do not have this problem. Each server is running the same build and version of Access 2003.
