I have an Access 2007 front-end connecting to SQL Server Express 2008 R2 back-end database.

An 'admin' form consists of several sub-forms to manage small back-end tables. The sub-forms have views as their record source and are opened as 'snapshots'. I have buttons to add new records, which open up unbound forms and then use stored procedures to add the new records.

My test system runs sql server on xp pro with access running on another win 7 pc and everything runs as expected but on a client system I get the shown error when trying to add new records. They have a dedicated win7 machine running SQL Express 2008 R2 and Win7 clients.

Any suggestions please? Thanks. ODBC Error Message
