MS Access 2003; XP Pro, MS network (sorry - not a sysadmin, know zero about networking). I added two fields to a table and set up a combo box using a query to another table for values in one of the fields. I ran an update query to populate the fields. When I tried to synch (direct) with my (one) replica I got this error: â€œSynchronization between replica â€˜\\myserver\myfolder\mydesignmaster.mdbâ€™ (obviously Iâ€™m making up the names) and replica â€˜\\myserver\myreplica.mdbâ€™ failed. The synchronization failed because a design change could not be applied to one of the replicas.â€ I removed the fields from the table, but still get this error. Can anyone suggest where to go from here? Many thanks in advance!
