Having problem saving as MDE in particular folder

Hi Experts,

Lately I am not able to save my app as MDE in a particular network folder, I get the attached message.
However when I create it in another folder then copy/paste to the desired folder it works.
What could be the reason?

You should always create an ADE in a local folder. In fact, you should never open a database file for writing objects and code directly off a network folder - or you may lose your work.

So, prepare and finish your work in a local folder, then copy what is needed to the network folder.

@Gustav,

1- Re working with network file, I know there is a small chance of corruption, however since we have a daily backup routine, it will in worse case lead to a days loss of work, while at the other hand, if I end up always working with local copy, then in case that my pc is for some reason down (even if its just offline), I may also end up losing my day, and the later happened already quite more often..

fyi- Most of my work is done remotely.

2- Re saving the file as ADE directly to the server, I dont see where it can go wrong, in fact this is how I'm operating all the years and never experience issues..

Thanks,
Ben

Then it's probably a security issue on the server. Ask your network admin to adjust the settings to match those of the folder that you can save to.

@Gustav,

I also suspected that, however when I try a diff Access file to save as MDE under that same folder it works, this is what confuses me..

Thanks,
Ben
