    Leave a Workgroup (2000 SP2 )

    I need to leave a workgroup, and set my PC back to default. Post 478506 from Hans, explains how to do this, however, i do not have WRKGADM.EXE on my PC in any of the office folders/subfolders. (or anything resembling it)

    So how can i leave my current access workgroup, and set it to a default. i do not have a System.mdw on the machine to join either, current databases all work from a shortcut as per that post anyway.

    Ack! not enough research... <img src=/S/bagged.gif border=0 alt=bagged width=22 height=22>

    to answer my own query. Later versions have build the workgroup program into access, where you set the wmd to join, there is a 'create button' to create an empty workgroup. click that and Voila!

    There should at least be an .mdw file on your PC, perhaps in a hidden folder. Make sure that you display hidden files and folders, then do a search for *.mdw on your hard disk. Otherwise, you'll have to copy one from another PC.

    You can join another workgroup by changing a registry value: start RegEdit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0AccessJ etEngines4.0
    The value named SystemDB specifies the workgroup you're a member of. On my PC, it isApplication DataMicrosoftAccessSystem.mdw, which stands for

    Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftAccessSystem.mdw

    If you put 2000 as version in your post, we don't suspect that you mean 2002 or 2003.
