URGENT NAVFIT98A ISSUE WITH MICROSOFT ACCESS


Tony

Recommended Posts

It appears as though NMCI has implemented new network access restrictions that have negatively impacted NAVFIT98A functionality. From what NWIC/SPAWAR has determined, NAVFIT98A is unable to open the ACCESS database residing on a network server location. This is not a NAVFIT98A issue, it is an NMCI-driven privilege and/or permissions issue.

However, we have identified a workaround. For your NAVFIT98A to function properly, you must:
   1. Copy the NAVFIT98A ACCESS database file from the network and put it on the local machine’s hard drive.
   2. Launch NAVFIT98A and open the database file that was copied to the local machine’s hard drive and perform your NAVFIT98A-related work.
   3. Once you have completed your NAVFIT98A-related work, the ACCESS database file can be copied back to the original network server location for storage thereby enabling the next NAVFIT98A user to gain access to that data by repeating the steps outlined above. 
Until NMCI changes this new network privilege/permissions restriction, NAVFIT98A will only be able to open database files that reside on the local machine hard drive.
