Access Front End Changes

P: 12
Hi All

I've created a split database and given each user their own front end. The front end databases are in named subfolders within on main folder. Generally speaking, I make changes on the front end in my named folder, then copy the whole file to everyone else.

We are working on a terminal services server, and one of my colleagues work remotely, the others are all working in the same office, but still all of us, including me are logged in via terminal services.

What I am struggling with is that the one colleague working remotely always has problems, things that work perfectly for me, don't work for him.

Can anyone suggest what might be the cause of this? Have wondered if this is a terminal services issue rather than an Access issue, hense my mentioning it.

Appreciate any pointers.

Sorry Gail. Terminal Services as a means to use Access remotely is a recommended solution. I know of know issues intrinsic to that which cause problems (only solutions as far as I know).

As for anything else, I assume you weren't asking for analysis of that as you give no information as to the differences between your colleague's setup and any others except the fact that they are coming in remotely. I see nothing in that alone which could explain the different behaviour I'm afraid.

Hi NeoPa

As far as I can tell there is no difference in front ends used locally and remote, as I said, I simply copy them between folders and my IT support say that they access rights are the same.

Thanks for posting an answer though.

Sounds like a problem that needs on-site view of the setup. Frankly, even then it's likely to prove elusive. From what you say, your IT people sound quite clued-up already. Not necessarily an undiscoverable problem, but the signs certainly don't look too good.

Best of luck anyway Gail :-)

Check the Access installation. Maybe is not the same.
As NeoPa ask, describe the specific problem you have.
What is going wrong on terminal and work fine on other computers ?
