    Hello. I created a database, which is split between front end and back end. I was able to make copies of the database and have it tailored to each of our branches. For each user, I had to create a copy of the front end and link it to the back end from their machines. This was done for 3 of the branches (besides head office) on 3 computers in each branch over a OneDrive. At the head office, where the original files were created, everything works fine. However, in the branches, 2 out of 3 branches are giving me an error on the fields which pull the "Current User" and the "Date/Time". I am confused because all fields seem to be working fine on some computers but not other others. Please help.

    Is the back end resting on OneDrive and the front end in each of the branches?

    Hello D19slim88,

    If I am reading this correctly all of the computers at two branches are experiencing reference issues over the network. My initial thought is to relink the front end .Accdb to the backend DB from the computer(s) in question.

    Best of Luck,
