Access 2k10 app opens a linked .dbf table and extracts some data with a query. This works fine when run on an XP system. Exact same app run on a win7 pro system and it doesn't work. it doesn't extract the data. It almost seems like the app continues running before the I/O operation is finished. Not sure how to trouble shoot this.

this is a split database residing on a win2k8 server, on a LAN. The app is stored on a usb hard drive on the server.
