    I have an Access report database that links to a third party Access database. Neither database has any security restrictions.

    Recently I copied the Access database to a new computer and tried to set up the links to the other database, which is on another computer, using a mapped drive. I get the message "You do not have the necessary permissions to use the '<file name>' object. Have your system administrator or the person who created this object establish the appropriate permissions for you."

    I researched this on Google but could not find a solution that worked.

    And the original user has left the company and is uncontactable. Duh.

    Can you open the database that you are trying to "link to" from the new computer that you have copied the database on to?
    Have you tried copying the "linking database's System.mdw workgroup file on to the same Folder that holds the Database that you want to link to and then joining that workgroup for the "copied database".
    Have you tried Creating a new blank Database on the same folder as the database to be linked to and linking it to the database and then copying that to your new computer to see if maintains the links?
    If it does then "Import" the Queries, Forms and Reports from your "access denied" database in to the "blank" database.
