Access timer error

I have an app that has a timer and it runs overnight. I get an error "Network access was interrupted" (see attached image). How can I code around this to stop the application crashing?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Alternatively, if you have a file on your network drive such as the back-end of your database that should always be there, you *may* be able to apply a test like this to determine if the network connection is available before executing any code that requires a connection:

If Dir("s:\YourFolder\YourDB_Backend.accdb") & "" = "" Then
     ' Network is down
      Exit Sub ' Or Exit Function
End if
