I am trying to share the database within our workgroup. I created the

database on the file server and set the permissions for the users using the

database tool. When we go to the user computers we get the error that we

cannot connect to the database?

Does anyone know what could be wrong.

thank you.

Using a non english office version ? Well, just send a complaint to MS. It

is just not possible (unless you know how to program the sql database

manually). Best way to go is a dedicated pc with outlook + bcm and a shared

database on that pc. Don't install outlook on a exchange server. Would have

been nice if this info was on MS site.

Re: Setting up Shared Database on Windows 2003 Server - File Serve

Jan:

I am not using a non-english version. I did a test and set this up on a

machine running XP Professional and we are all able to connect over the

network. For some reason, i cannot connect to the database on the Windows

2003 Server machine. If anyone has any suggestions, please email me. Thank

you for all of your help.
