Access 2003 now on Windows 7: Problem with finding a path
Posted on 2011-10-07
I have an access file that I've been using on XP for 5 years without issue. I recently moved the file (still using Access 2003) on a Windows 7 machine. Everything is working except a function that allows you to pass a PDF file from the local file system as an attachment in outlook as well as passing some data into the Subject field of the message. When I use that function an error message pops up that the path cannot be found and to check the path. The path hasn't changed between machines (C:\Program Files\pdf995) and yet Access can't find it.
Some clues: Windows 7 has two directories for Program Files one called "Program Files" and one called "Program Files (x86). I didn't think this would be an issue, I guess, since the subdirectory (pdf995) is in the Program Files directory.
I'm wondering if there's something weird going on with the Windows 7 file system?
