Microsoft Access Data Type

By itech ·

Some XP Pro PC's on our network have a certain conflict with Office 2000's Microsoft Access. The problem is with the Data Type when creating a new table. When you scroll down it says:


etc. How do I fixthis problem as most of our users on the network like to create their own tables in the database program instead of having to rely on the wizards. Upgraded from 2000 Premium few days ago.

Microsoft Access Data Type

by stephen.burns In reply to Microsoft Access Data Typ ...

I'm running Office 2000 under XP Pro and don't see this behaviour on my machine. This appears to be a corruption of the Access installation rather than an inherent problem.

You could try to run the Detect and Repair option on the help menu, repair the installation from the Setup program (on the CD or server you istalled from), or uninstall and reinstall Office on the affected machines.

If the problem still exists try using the Office Update site at microsoft to download and install all the patches.

select the GO button to run the update scan and then select the updates you require. If this hasn't been run before you may have to do the process a number of times to get completely up to date.
