Backend file

This morning I switched the computer where the backend tables are. It is not allowing multiple computers to connect to that backend file.

First when you tried to link to the backend it said something like "That file is already in use"

Now it allows you to link to it but doesn't allow mulitple computers to write on it. It won' allow for new records, etc.

Any idea what's going on? Thanks! The computers are all connected through a Homegroup.

The network share and the directory security must allow all users full read, write, and delete privileges for it to work properly.

Permissions shouldn't change of their own accord.

I know it's blindingly obvious, but have you tried .....

They didn't change. The author wrote:
