This follows on from an earlier post of mine, but probably deserves a fresh post.
I have splt the DB into Front and Back End and placed a Front End onto the 2nd PC. Everything was working fine until the wirelss network link on the main pc packed up causing the 2nd PC to lose its connection. I had to leave the client yesterday with just the main PC working with the Front and Back end. I used Mark's suggestion of using the UNC path to link the Front to the Back End.
However, this morning I received a phone call from the client saying that when they try to run up the app from the main PC they get a "Disk or Network error" message and nothing happens. This I find surprising as the app Front and Back End are on the same PC and are not trying to connect anywhere else.
As I won't be able to get into see them until tomorrow and as I was the last one on the system I have guided them back to using the old pre split DB.
Has anyone encountered the above problem before? As I say everything was working fine on that PC when I left. They tend to leave their PC's on all the time and as far as I know they haven't re-booted it.
