Some time ago, I created a database at work, which is on a network so everyone who had rights to a certain folder on the network could use it. Everything has been fine until recently. The person who used it most, had problems (not related to the database) with her pc. Our IT dept, said something about her profile being corrupt, so they deleted it, and created a new one. Since then, although she can get into the database, she can't link up to the external tables that retrieve the data. It can't be the database, as because we have 'roaming' profiles, I can log on to her machine, using my logon, and use it without problems. Initially, we had to log on to an external server when using the database, to get access to the tables. Our IT can't work it out. IT's solution is for her to log on as me. This isn't an ideal solution. Everyone has access to my desktop, emails, documents. The IT guy is saying it's my database that's the problem, but how can I use it on her machine, but she can't? We've even tried, her logging on to my machine to use it, under her log in, but still it doesn't work. Just wondered if anyone has any ideas, as our IT don't.
