"Disc or Network Error" problem

P: n/a
Hi:

I have an Access application that has been running on my desktop system just fine. I
recently tried to move it to my laptop, and on the laptop I get a "Disc or Network Error"
message when I try and open it (after the opening Form has opened but before the data base
information on that form has been presented). There is no way to get into Approach and
eventually I have to ctrl alt delete out. The strange thing is that I have another Access
application that transferred just fine, and runs 100% on the laptop with no issues. the
desktop is Windows 95, the Laptop XP Home and the version of Access is Office 2000.

Can someone suggest what the problem may be, and what the solution is? I have moved the
files using memory sticks and through the network with the same result so I don't think
the data itself is messed up.

Regards

I wish you had supplied the error number. Much easier to understand the
problem.

Anyway, I'm guessing you have a linked table and that you haven't copied
it to your hard drive on the laptop. Go into AddIns on the menu and
verify your tables via the Linked Table manager.

Forget it!. I found the problem was in the database reference area, and the reference was
to a drive that wasn't on the laptop all the time ( a memory stick). Sorry to have wasted
your time.

Apologies
