    system.mdw files

    Hi All,

    Some time in the distant and dim past I was "testing" the use of workgroups in Access 97.
    This has finally come back to haunt me.
    Does anyone know how to clear out all workgroup settings?

    Regards,

    Carl

    Extract a new copy from your office 97 CD. I suggest that you copy it to another file (I use system.mdw.org) with a different name in the same location.

    Do NOT use periods in windows filenames or it really will come back to bite you! Windows will, at some point, assume this is a URL rather than a filename, particularly if you use an org extension, since that is a recognized domain type.

    [img]/w3timages/icons/frown.gif[/img]You're right of course. Mine is actually named systemmdw.eric, but a domain of 'eri' or 'eric' is definitely not out of the question!
