Default 2003 vs 2007 question

2003 Access Database

z:\\Jones\HomeFiles\household.be
z:\\Jones\household.fe

Users A and B have full access to both files and all folders.

User A is using Access 2003
User B is using Access 2007

User A can access and write.
User B is unable to open the database.

Is this a version issue or should I be looking for something else?

There are a number of issues with 2007, not least is that the frontend must be
in a "Trusted Location". See Allen Browne's tips at

http://allenbrowne.com/Access2007.html

for this and other issues.

Be looking at Trusted Sites.
Try this --
To trust your folder, click:
* Office Button (top left)
* Access Options (bottom of dialog)
* Trust Center (left)
* Trust Center Settings (button)
* Trusted Locations (left)‚óŹ
* Add new location (button)
