Access 2003 problems opening under Vista Business...

Posted: 02-21-2008, 10:01 PM
I have an Access 2003 .mdb file of about 20Mb which has extensive VBA code to
help automate the processes. I can use this file in Office 2003 on an XP
system just fine. Put the same file on Vista Business running Office 2003 and
it has no end of troubles trying to start. The file doesn't have the
'Read-only' attribute set, but it says it has to start in Read-Only mode. Why
I don't know. Once I let it start after all the opening error messages
(because it can't initialise all the temp tables I create), all the
References are there, and all the other options are set exactly the same as
on my XP system. Any clues why Vista has to be so officious in not starting
my application file? Many thanks for your assistance. ...Michael Daly

::Hi, :

::I think your mdb file maybe damaged via copy, you can copy it again
and see if it works. If you still get the problem, you may use som
tools to recover the mdb file. You can try a utility called 'Advance
Access Repair' ( to repair your Acces
file. It works rather well for my damaged Access mdb files. You can jus
try the free demo.:
