Problem with Access Database Documenter

By HereInOz ·
Hi All,

I hope you can assist. We have a computer (AMD Sempron 2200 with 80GB HDD and 512MB RAM) running Windows XP Pro and Office 2003. It is connected to a Windows Small Business Server 2003 domain.

Everything appears to work fine except for the Database Documenter in MS Access. When we run the Databse Documenter, it opens normally, the dialog box where you select the table appears, but when we click OK for the process to happen, it seems to run, but nothing ever appears on the screen. It just runs and then nothing. It doesn't hang the application - just nothing. On other machines on the domain, including similarly specced machines, it performs as normal.

Has anyone run into this one before and found a way around it? I am aware that this is probably one of those rare ones that are near to impossible to sort, but I would like to attempt to fix it for the client.

Hope there is someone who can help.

On this issue system:

Is the process showing as running in TaskManager? Would be good to know if it is showing as running or not running.

Any errors in the Application Event Log?

Is the Windows Firewall on? If it is, turn it off and see if the application runs.

It works out that it is a database security issue between Access 2003 and the database, which was originally created in Access 2000. Not being an Access guru - far from it - I have handed it over to those who know about these things.

At least we were able to prove to the client that it was not hardware, operating system or network related, and thank you for your assistance on this one.
