Secured Access Databases on an OCS site

By erinl ·
I have created several secured access databases to be used in different divisions throughout my company. I have been working with some tech people within my company and have created links via an OCS website for the users to have a central location for accessing the databases. However, no one outside of my division is able to access them. They receive an error message that tells them the specified path in incorrect or missing. Everyone has been given access to the network location of the database but they still cannot view them. The links on the OCS site are linked to the .lnk files created during security set up in Access.

Does anyone have any insight into why no users in divisions other than my own can get to the databases? When checked at my division the links on the OCS site work perfectly. We are all stumped and any help would be greatly appreciated.

look to the browsers security settings.

when browser based, the browsers security settings for trusted sites might be interfering.

Is the front end to the database the MS Access client?

In order to open a MDB file, the user has to be able to create a LDB in the same directory.

When you say 'your division', is that a Separate windows domain / workgroup / and a separate physical network?

I believe the answer is that the remote users would have to have share-level access to the folder where the MDB file lives.

Also verify network paths

If you're using a drive letter network path, all the users need to have the same mapped drive location.
