I have Access 2010. I am having Issues with link manager to change location of back end not saving the file in new location. It goes through the motions of finding new location and the BE file, The new location window has greyed out icon, but will not save the new location. Work around was to convert BE to local tables then resplit to the new location.
Also, when trying to change display form open options in file/ options/ current database, none of the changes are being saved and revert to the original settings when I try to test. This problem seems to be program related as all db files i tested are having the same issue. The save function seems to be the heart of the problem as hitting save icon makes the window border flash 3 times but the changes do not take place.
I have tried compacting the DB. I went into programs folder and repaired the program. Rebooted several times and still not being nice. The service packs seem to be for Runtime version.
