Hi Laura, > "...and the Front end on my personal folder of a network server, > I can no longer get..." Generally, we want to put the front-end (FE) database on the local hard drive, not on a networked drive. Does the situation improve if you copy the FE to your local hard drive? Are your forms based on the linked tables directly, or on queries? If based on a queries, do the queries result in an editable recordset? I don't know if this will help, but I would try deleting all table links, then do a compact and repair of the database (hold down the shift key to prevent any startup forms from opening), and then use File > Get External Data > Linked tables to re-establish the table links. Does this help the situation?
