    I am trying to use "Visual Data Manager" to create a new database. My operating system is XP Pro. The program seems to let me create the database, the problem comes when I try to create a table for the database. I click "New Table", add a field, type in the name of the field and then click the button "Build Table" and get the error message <The following Error occurred: The database engine can't find". Make sure it is a valid parameter or alias name, that it doesn't include invalid characters or punctuation, and that the name isn't too long.
    Number 3125>

    I have used "Visual Data Manager" before when I was running Windows 98. This is the first time I have tried to use "Visual Data Manager" since I started using XP. Could it be possible that the security flags are not properly set in XP? I am the only user on the stand alone computer. I thought I had all rights.

    Thanks for any ideas

    OK folks, I have slept on my problem overnight and realized that the problem was with the user, not the machine. Sometimes one gets tunnel vision and can't see the obvious. But at least I have found a good site to help solve future problems.

    Thanks

    I'll be back.
