Funtions on Menu bar are disabled

I created a database at home and copy it to our office network server. When I open it, everything is fine except some of the functions on the menu bar are disabled such as ScriptMaker, File Reference, Accounts & Privileges ... I cannot modify the file, how to turn on the functions again?

Thanks a million.


RE: Funtions on Menu bar are disabled

Sounds like you are opening your hosted version with different security credentials.


RE: Funtions on Menu bar are disabled

Thanks, TStriker

In the account and privileges, I set to Admin with full acess privileges. It should allow me to modify the file in any computer, right?

RE: Funtions on Menu bar are disabled


  Hi - what account is being used when the copied file is being opened? Is the Admin account being used or is another account being used in place of your Admin account? You could try holding the Shift key while you open the copied file - this would allow you to specify an account.

You said copy...

Check the attributes of the file on OS level.

The Archive has to be checked.
Probably the attribute is set to Read Only.
