Can I make structural changes to the BE database without affecting the users? i.e. the relationships, proprieties Also, why do you have to put the FE on the users computer, can't you put their copy of the FE on the network, under a folder just for that user?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Quick answer is no you can’t make changes to an Access backend with the users in it because the link to the FE, if it is being used, locks the structure. As far as the front end, it can be on a network drive, but all the users must have full rights to the directory so that the lock file that is created when you open the database can be created and updated appropriately.
