Access projects crashing on clients machine

Hi,

I am running SQL server 2000 and attemptng to use client
machines with access 2000 to connect to the sql database.

Problems is on a client machine with the readiness updates
it completely hangs intermediately when accessing the data
through forms.

But once the sql client utilities are installed on the
client machine it works fine no crashing. Does anyone
know what
might need to be done to other client machines as I
cannot install the sql utilities on them all! I would
like access to connect to the sql server without
installing the additional utils.

Thanks in advance

  • 1. Are the SQL drivers installed on the clients?
    2. Are the clients being set up as an Access project?
    3. Can you do anything else when you open the client, or do you go straight to the forms?
    4. I would try installing on another machine and see if you get the same results. You need to find out if this is machine specific or if this is a network wide issue.
    5. If none of this helps, can you provide more details on your installation and setup.
