Shared mdb, peer to peer

P: n/a
Access 2000 mdb is set up in a shared folder on host machine using Windows XP,
and a second XP machine has read/write permissions for the shared folder.
Machine using the shared file can add new data, but the new data is not visible
in the host machine. How do you set it up so that all new data is visible to
both computers? Many thanks.

Normally, the data should be viewable, and editable on each pc. I not really
sure why it is not working, but it should.

You should could consider splitting the mdb into two parts, but that will
not of its own fix whatever problem you have now.

For info in splitting, check out:
