Wrong Default Database Folder at Startup Automatically

P: n/a
I have a user who gets an error every time she tries to open Microsoft
Access. It says: "Microsoft Access can't change the working directory
to '\\sv1\uk\daveg\mydocuments\'. Verify that the drive is valid and
the path is 260 characters or less in length."

I have tracked the problem to the Default Database Folder text box
which I can see when I click Tools -> Options -> General(tab) in
Microsoft Access. It is certainly a bogus directory. That directory
doesn't even exist! It should be '\\sv1\us\daveg\mydocuments\'.

If I clear out that field, and close the database, the next time I open
it, it is set to the same wrong path.

How is that field getting set? How do I either make it set the right
path, or not set any path at all?

Thanks,

Doug

I figured it out! My user was assigned to the wrong Active Directory
group. I just assigned him to the right group and it all started
working!
