    I just found that both of my computers have the same glitch going on. The link table wizard in Access 2003 fails when I choose ODBC as the source. Can someone help me resolve this. I installed Norton Internet Security 2007 recently, and other than the latest ms updates, haven't made any other changes. I've started windows without norton, but it didn't help. I've re-installed office, and it didn't help either.

Saved files to external backup drive and unable to retrieve

Postby RCBBbmdsZXNleQ » Sun, 05 Mar 2006 11:53:27 GMT

I was running Windows 2000 Professional and was having problems because of a 
virus so I decided to change my operating system to XP.  Before doing so, I 
copied all of my outlook files to an external drive.  I did not do a backup 
but just copied all of the files.  When I tried to retrieve information from 
these copied files, I clicked on outlook and it just takes me to my persent 
version of outlook on my new XP version.  Is there anyway to access the 
copied files for information about my contacts and calendar items?  Thanks, D

You would get better help from one of the Outlook newsgroups, this group is 
for working with external data within MS Access.

1.Can I save my backup files in a different drive

I would like to save my backup word documents (.wbk) in a different hard or 
flash drive, is that possible? Both .doc & .wbk are in now in C:/.../xx/My 
Documents. I don't see any option to select a different backup file location.

2.Unable to save .doc file onto network drive after updating to SR2

I updated my Office 97 SR1 program at work to SR2 via the microsoft web site 
update.  Now I am unable to save previously created, modified and saved .doc 
files to our network drive that we store the files on.  (I open the file 
(it's on drive "X), edit it and try to save it on drive "X" (office runs off 
of drive "P".)  Whether I try to save with same or different name, it won't 
let me save it on "X".  It will however, allow me to save the file on the P: 
drive.  And, my Excel files are fine, no problems by the way.  The error that 
comes up says (first) that I'm using an incorrect file name.  Then it says 
that there is a network permission error or the network connection may be 
lost. The files are not protected or locked, I am the last listed modifier on 
the file. and the connection is fine.  Any thoughts?  I tried to uninstall 
the update and it says that I need to uninstall through the original setup 
program.  There was no setup file per se so I reinstalled (reran the download 
file).  I rebooted and restarted.  I disallowed fast saves. I feel like I'm 
overlooking something.  

3.Saving messages from Outlook Express 6 to an external hard drive

Can you tell me how I can save all of my messages from Outlook Express 6 to 
an external hard drive?  Do I have to transfer them somehow to a folder and 
then do it?  I'm not very computer savvy.  Thanks so much.

4.import backup.pst files from external HD

The screen on my wifes laptop died and using another monitor I was able to 
export .pst files to an external HD. During the xfer I ran out of disk space 
so I re-exported the files to another folder. I then set up a new account 
under my wifes name, giving her admin authority  and then installed Outlook 
in her account. I then imported the .pst files into Outlook. Both computers 
are running Outlook XP. The import seemed to work fine but when completed I 
dicovered I had used an older backup and was missing all 2008 msgs. No 
problem, I thought, I'd just import and overwrite the new data over the old 
using the wizard to skip overwrite on duplicates. The new files were located 
on a different disk, if that makes a difference.

No go. I keep getting a msg stating, in context, you do not ave the 
apprpriate authority to perform this operation. It is the same account/user 
as the first import. So how do I fix the situation?
