not a valid path RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I'm getting the below.

    'O:\MVP_be.mdb' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

    the thing is that is not the right file name or path.  it should be going in the network

    Network\server\data\mvp_database\gatelog-local.mdb

    it should be looking for "gatelog-local.mdb" and not "MVP_be.mdb"

    How can I fix this?  Also I'm using microsoft runtime 2016.

  • Sounds like the database needs to have it's links refreshed.  Where did you get the file from?

  • it's in a microsoft access program. it's also linked in with our database in microsoft access.

    my computer and this other computer only have runtime on it cause we don't have the access program.

    It works fine on my computer but on an other computer is where I'm having the issue.

  • If it works fine on your computer then you need to make sure the other computer is mapped the same way yours is.  So, if you have *mapped* drive *O* on your machine you need to map that same drive on the other machine.
