    I have Access 97 & Access 2000 installed on win 2000

    I AM UNABLE TO SAVE ANY DATABASES

    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!

    VERY BIG HELP!

    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
    rebooted
    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
    Access.
