Access 2007 Opening Files In Read Only


There's possibly a very simple answer to this but it's been boggling my mind all morning and I can't find any answers on the net.

I'm opening a db on a network that was built with Access 2003. When I open it with Access 2003 on one pc it opens fine and I can edit it. But when I open it with Access 2007 I get a message saying that's it's opened the db in read only mode and that if I want to edit it I have to save a copy.

I tried opening the db exclusively but still no luck. Is there a reason why it's doing this and how do I get around it?

Many thanks,

Peter

Access Files - Read Only - Help Needed
Access files are locked in read only. We upgraded our network and moved the database to a new network - small business server 2003. Does anyone know why all database files are read only now?

Opening Excel Files In Access.
Is it possible to open up excel files from access using a macro??

I have a database where we search for files by job number, we also have individual spreadsheets for these jobs where the job number is the file name. So basically what I want to do is open one of these spreadsheets from a button in one of my forms.

thanks, joe

Trouble Opening Access Files
Hi,

I was wondering if i could get some help here. I think this is to do with the security issue. I usually double-click to open or run an access file (for example student.mdb) that sits on the server with no problem. But this time, nothing happen when i did double-clicked on it from my laptop while the file was being open by someone'else on another computer. I know that it makes sense that we shouldn't open a file that's being used by other users. But my curiosity is that should it not give you a warning like (you know) you're not able to save any changes or things like that. No, i didnot get any of that messages. It's just nothing happen after trying to open it by double-clicking it.

I have set the macro security to low level but that did not help either. Is there any thing that i need to tweak?

Thank you in advance

Access 2007 Not Opening
Hi All,

I've been developing in Access 2002-2003, and now have Access 2007. I can open a 2002-3 .mdb database OK, but when I click on the Main Menu buttons, nothing happens -- they do not work. So I cannot access any of the existing Menus and Forms. In fact, none of the previously existing databases I tried will open/close Forms using the existing buttons. Any ideas?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Opening Access 2007 Using Msado15.dll
I have an appplication that reads information from Access Database, it uses ADO (msado15.dll) to open a database using Connection15::Open( ). I am unable to open Access 2007 database using this method. I get the following error: "Microsoft JET Database Engine, Unrecognized database format". Is there something I am doing wrong or I should be aware of? Does msado15.dll support Access 2007 databases? Thank you in advance.

Error Opening MDB Files On New Setup
I just recently helped a local business move their files to a new server, and reinstall fresh windows and office on all their machines. I have run into a problem with Access, hoping someone can help.

Sometimes (usually when someone else has the file open), if you double click on the mdb file (which is on a mapped drive) nothing happens. If you make a shortcut that doesnt help. But if you open Access, and then goto File-Open and located the MDB file that way, it opens fine.

This is annoying to the employees and they want a solution.

Anyone run into this problem?
