I'm working wtih a .ACCDB in Access 2010 x64 running on Windows 7 x64
This DB was originally an Access 2000 format whose permissions were controlled by an old MDW.
It contained several links to tables in two other DBs also of Access 2000 format and whose permissions were also controlled
by the MDW.
I had admin permission to all the DBs and exported all objects from all DBs to seperate MDBs and confirmed I could open all
three without restriction from the MDW.
I then converted all three to ACCDB format and have been working fine with them.
However, I have just now discovered that I cannot delete, cut, or paste any of the objects in the main database.
However, I can delete, cut, and paste any and all objects in the two linked databases when I open them directly.
To be clear, in the main database, my inability to cut, delete, or paste objects is NOT limited to the linked tables.
I cannot even delete any queries I have created AFTER the conversion to ACCDB format.
This limitation applies to all objects (tables, queries, forms, reports, macros, and modules), linked or not, in the main
I have gone back to the original MDB running in Access 2007 on Windows XP (x86) and have confirmed I AM able to delete, cut
and paste any and all objects.
However, I also checked the original x86 ACCDB running in Access 2010 on Windows 7 x86 and I am NOT able to delete, cut or
paste any objects.
Additionally, I AM able to edit all the objects as much as I care to and in any way I wish.
This limitation apparently only applies to what I can do within the navigation pane.
I have confirmed my windows user account has all the necessary file level permissions.
I have poked around in the Access Options with no help.
I have reduced the setting for ‘Default Open Mode’ to ‘Exclusive’ from ‘Shared’.
Still no joy.
Any help or insights will, as always, be greatly appreciated.
