    Missing System.mdw (Access 2003)

    Hello Access Gurus,

    I have a problem with a missing System.mdw file. I joined a database to another mdw file today to test out the security and then when I went to re-join to the original System.mdw file it was no longer there. Is there any way that I can replace it or get a copy of a clean System.mdw file?

    Regards

    Jocelyn

    The default location for System.mdw is Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftAccess. Application Data is hidden, so you must show hidden files and folders in order to see it.
    If there is no System.mdw in this location, Access should create it next time you run Access.
