Re: Copying Access from a Windows Computer to a Vista Computer
1. When copying over a database from a CD you may have to go to the file properties and security tab and uncheck a box which basically says that this came from somewhere else and not to trust it. Uncheck it if it is there.
2. Also, you may have reference errors so if they, or you, can open it up on their machine go to the VBA window and to TOOLS > REFERENCES and see if any are marked MISSING. If so, uncheck them and close the dialog and then reopen. If none are mareked missing you may still have a reference problem but you can uncheck the Microsoft DAO reference close the dialog and then open the dialog and recheck it. Or if an ADO reference is there INSTEAD of the DAO reference then do the same thing with it.
3. And when you say it copies a duplicate - it probably isn't that. They probably don't have their file extensions for known file types showing and that is the LDB file (locking file) which opens.
