    In a corp enviornment, we upgraded from Office 2K to Office 2K3 and all
    seemed to be fine. However, it seems there is an issue with our IBM ThinkPad
    users opening databases, but not with the same roll out and our Desktop
    Users. When the Thinkpad T40/43 try to open a database they receive an
    error msg that Access encountered an error and needs to close down, and or it
    gives the option to try to repair the database. However, when a user IBM
    desktop user access these same database they open successfully.. Are there
    know issues and fixes for this..? Any ideas would be appreciated..

    thanks in advance

    I am using an IBM ThinkPad and have had no issues.

    Are you uptodate with all service packs for both the operating system and
    Office?

    Joan

    Are you using Oracble ODBC drivers to access Oracle db's ? that's where the
    issue seesm to be.
    I will say that the Desktop units are at XP SP1 and the Laptops are at XP
    SP2, so it could have something to do with SP2..

    Any other suggestions..

    Sorry, I missed the part about Oracle.

    have you checked Oracle's website?

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!
