Missing Switchboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have users that have an Access 2007 database, that was supported by the vendor, but no longer has support. They users were getting an error that sounded like someone with a newer version of Access had updated the database.

    I restored an older version that they said was working right (they said it was working right 3-1-18, so I restored from a 2-24-18 version), but the Switchboard was missing from this version too. I found another version that had the switchboard, so I imported it into a copy of the restored DB. The switchboard now appears, but it is not linked right. I tried using the Linked Table Manager to correct this, but it says it cannot find Account Code table, even though it is showing under tables in the Navigation Pane. 

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help. This DB will be moved to a real database as soon as it is fixed.

  • Hi James,

    I could be wrong but I thought the Switchboard table was a "local" table and not a "linked" table.

    Just my 2 cents...

    You had mentioned that,"I restored an older version that they said was working right (they said it was working right 3-1-18, so I restored from a 2-24-18 version), but the Switchboard was missing from this version too."

    In Access 2007, You can go to Database Tools -> Switchboard Manager.

    If you are updating to any new version and if this option is not available in ribbon then you get go to Options -> Quick Access Toolbar.

    Then select the 'Commands not in the ribbon' and find 'Switchboard Manager' then add it and click ok.

    You can access the switchboard from QAT and Switchboard Form and Table will be display in navigation pane.

    Then you can try to access it and check whether it is working or not.

    Regards
