MSDE and Access 2000

Hi everyone,

In using the SQL Server Database Wizard in Access 2000 to create a new
access project, I get two consecutive error messages and then the wizard
shuts down. The first, which apprears immediately after starting the wizard
is a message box stating something like "the property value is too large".
After clicking through and filling out the values in the connection and
database dialog, I get a second dialog box with the message "Overflow" and
the wizard terminates.

My operating system is Windows 2000 Professional with Access 2000 and MSDE
2000.

Does anyone have any thoughts about what might be causing these errors?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Stephen

Have a look at Microsoft Knowledge Base Article Q272384
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;272384

It describes the overflow error when creating a MS Access project on MSDE
2000.
Apparently, installing MS Office Service Pack 3 should fix the problem.

Hope this helps!

Martin

Thanks, Martin. I'll take a look at the article and see if it helps. As
far as the office version, I'm using Access 2000 (9.0.2720) and Office
2000, but I don't know the service pack status.

At the end of first line it should say e.g. SP-1, SP-2 etc depending
on what service pack is installed.
