Access database not opening all the way

  1. Access database not opening completly

    I have a user that is having Microsoft Access 2003 issues. There is a database created for this base only but here is what is happening.

    He moved from one building to another. At the first bldg. he had all rights and access. He moved the same machine to another bldg. and tried to log on. He was able to log on but he is unable to access certain parts of the database. We have changed his permissions so that he has full permissions and we have changed the macros to that it is low. When that didn't work we reloaded Office. None of that worked. Some things will give him an "open report error" but on others it won't give him any errors at all. It just dosn't open. Any ideas?

    Is that on a domain? Or just a workgroup?

    If it's a domain, you have a whole mess of permissions to check. Maybe you missed just one?

    As an experiment. Try to copy the whole database, COPY, to his machine directly and open it from there. If he can't even access it locally, then there has to be a problem only between Access and the DB. Usually some kind of version conflict.
