Access 2007 DB on network share

Good day everyone. I have a newly constructed Access 2007 database that links to 2 SQL DBs and has multiple reports, etc.

It works perfectly from my desktop but when I load it to a folder on a network share and attempt to run it form there, it just does not display the correct data (or any data) on the reports.

The I can view the records on the SQL databases and have added the network share as a trusted location to Access 2007.

Any ideas how to make this work?

That is correct. I have an ODBC connection as we require each employee that uses the file to use their own credentials.

I planned on creating the connections on each of the machines that will be using it but my machine already has it yet I can't seem to get the reports to populate??

OK, so I have no clue what may be going on. It may be congestion on the network that is causing this issue. I checked this morning (without changing anything yesterday) and all seems to pull correctly from the network share. It is a mystery thus far.

Thank you either way for your help.
