    Hi,

    We have Microsoft Access databases/files which are shared in a network
    drive. Users are using Access 2003 from their workstations which are
    using Windows XP Pro in a domain environment.

    When accessing the Access files, they will encounter errors as in the
    subject above.
    We have followed the solution from
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=321733 but it does not
    work.

    The problem will occur when users open the file and use it for about
    15-20 minutes. Recently the time when the errors are hit has become
    shorter to 30 seconds.
    Users have to close the files and open them up again to re-access. We
    have tested with Excel and Word files in the network drive but they did
    not give such problems. Only Access files are affected.
    All users who are given access to these Access files are having the same
    problem.

    We would like to have advice on this issue.

    I would split the database and distribute the front-end to your users. Not
    only will this help immensely with network issues, but also prevent
    corruption.

    > Hi SusanV,


    Are you suggesting that this is a network issue? It seems that only Access
    files are affected. Are there any configuratiosn that can be done on the
    client side (workstations) instead of disturbing the files in the server?
    Could this be due to the timeoutsession of the workstation and how can we
    rectify that?
    What do you mean by 'distribute the front-end to users'?
