Article

 

In the March 1999 issue's Access World News, we reported on how Access references can break when end users update their

 

systems or install new software. Hardin explains the problem that causes functions like Left() and Date() to fail, delves into

 

some mysteries in Access’s use of references, and presents a module that can get your applications back on track.
