I believe there is something wrong with Access 2003 on a machine I rebuilt, possibly a missing component. There is an Access database that we use that connects to an SQL database, normally I just run an executable folder and then run the shortcut which loads the frontend of the database. Ever since I've rebuilt the machine I keep getting the following error :

"Access was not able to perform this operation because  
 the project is not connected to a SQL server Database"

Hopefully someone can help explain what is wrong?

Where does the shortcut point? – pnuts Dec 2 '12 at 13:31
    
To a .ade file in Program Files. There's not a problem with the shortcut because it works absolutely fine on a different PC. – Kevin Dodd Dec 2 '12 at 13:34
    
Could it be file access permissions? – pnuts Dec 2 '12 at 13:36
    
I don't think so, you don't normally need to change the permissions when installing it. I did add domain users with modify permissions though as i thought the same thing – Kevin Dodd Dec 2 '12 at 13:42
