Thanks. Don;t blame yourself. I write stuff and think it's clear. It
probably wasn't. Yes, I just want to get it working again so my
parents can use it. It's difficult for me as I'm 350 miles away from
the machines.

I hadn't found this specific page. I seemed to be always reading about
ACCESS DENIED causes, etc. This looks like a good option. I'll give
this a try.

I presume there MUST be a way to completely blow the database away
though, correct? It's just a file or set of files somewhere? (WHERE?)
;-) I'd rather not, and this new page seems like a good way to just
get working again. This question is more for my education. I'd rather
not do this but I'm willing to if it's required to get things going

Thanks so much,
