Access MDE becomes corrupt

By arne.sather ·
Hi

We have 120 users using Terminal Server and Metaframe. Our CRM-system is based on Access front-end and SQL 7.0 for data. We have been using and developing this system for several years now, and after we upgraded to Office 2K we have been experiencing some strange error. If the users share the same MDE-file, the file gets corrupted after a day. Sometimes after just 10 mins. If they have their own MDE, no one reports of any corupted databases.
BTW: Every user also have their own system.mdw....

I hope some can give us a clue what's wrong..

Best regards,

Arne Sather
System Manager

Don't have any experience with shared MDE's in Access2K, but it seems to me that you should probably look at distributing the MDE to the individuals - treat it more like a true client-server application. Also, you say at first the the MDE is corrupted, then later that the database is corrupted - or does one 'go bad' and then affect the other?

Access is very sensitive to corruption. One of the first things to check is your network cards when shared files become corrupt. Cheap network cards are often found to be the cause.

According to Microsoft, this is a bug that has been solved in SR-1

But thanks anyway..
