DBNETLIB connection error on Azure with SQL

Hello All

I have a database where the backend is on an Azure server in SQL and the front end is in Access 2010 on the users computers (the whole program started life as an Access 2010 database housed locally)

Some users are randomly getting a DBNETLIB connectionwrite error (I have attached a screenshot).  I have tried changing a registry setting but it did not work.

Any help is really appreciated!
Thanks!error msg from connection error

Also your SQL server transaction log may be filling up.  What Recovery model do you have set for the database? Full? Simple?


Thanks!

Hi dimante,

I did not think about the transaction log filling.  I am new to the sql server thing (someone else handles it at the company).  I am going to ask them to see if they can give me any more insight.

Thank yoU!
