    Hello,

    I am running a network with all XP machines. They are all in the same workgroup. I have a shared Sage Act database on BoxA.

    On BoxB, when I am logged in using the Administrator account, I am able to access the database file.

    However, on BoxB when I am logged in as User1, which has administrator access, I am NOT able to access to database file. I receive a permissions error. How can I access the database file as User1?

    Please advise, thanks in advance!
