    Default Shadow only

    I created a database and then copied it to another machine. The other machine only shows a shadow icon. It will not do anything and does not have the forms or anything else. Only the shadow icon. I copied everything to the exact same location as on the computer I am using. I really do not care if the network is optimized only that we get access to the database. Please advice.

    Richard, it's not clear what you mean by:

    >>I created a database and then copied it to another machine.

    The model for Alpha Five databases more or less assumes that the 'database' will exist in only one place on your network. Presumably on a shared system or server that can be 'seen' by other workstations on your network.

    Are you trying to establish shared access from two work stations to the same database on your network? or are you trying to simply put a copy on a second workstation so someone can experiment with it without affecting data in the shared tables?

    Did you copy the 'database' or did you copy the files from your shadowed folder on your local machine?
