    I have Access 97 & Access 2000 installed on win 2000


    If I open an app which hides the database window the save button on the
    toolbar and the save option on the Files menu show active.

    HOWEVER as soon as I open the database window and click on a table then

    The Save Button Greys and the save option on the file menu Greys out!


    Tools > Options No Locks, Open in shared mode

    NB this occurred whilst develpoping an application front end connecting to
    SQL Server.
    The modifications I had made disappeared after closing and reopening the app
    and it has since become unsaveable.
    I then discovered the extent of this 'feature' !!!

    I have
    reinstalled Access 97
    to no avail

    Apart from checking that the same was true of the 2000 installation I had
    not had a 2000 app open for some days.

    Correct. This is the way Access works, and always has worked.

    A Database is NOT A DOCUMENT. It's not like a spreadsheet or a Word
    file; it's a container for multiple Tables, Forms, Reports and so on.

    Access is working exactly as it's designed to work. If you want to
    make a copy of your database, do it using Windows Explorer, outside of

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
