We have an Access database on a file server which occasionally (from one workstation) refuses to open from Explorer. It will open from Access. A copy of the file will open from Explorer. File will open from Explorer on other stations and the server. This problem seems to reoccur every few months, the usual fix is to create a new copy and tell everyone to use the new copy. Would like to find the real solution to this.
(Also, if you use a shortcut you can supply various start up options for the database)
(Why force users to navigate explorer anyway...?)
