ACC1x: Two Error Messages with Database on Workgroups Server


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1


If you are connected to a Microsoft Windows for Workgroups server and have a database from the server open on your workstation in Microsoft Access, you may be disconnected by the server and receive error messages from Microsoft Access.


The server can disconnect any client by using Net Watcher, a program that comes with Windows for Workgroups. If you are disconnected, you receive two separate error messages when you attempt to open a table in Microsoft Access. The first error message is:

Internal database error (-1106).

When you choose OK, you receive the second error message:

Disk or Network error.


You must reconnect to the server on which the database is stored in order to use the database.


This behavior no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 2.0.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Connect your computer (the client) to a Windows for Workgroups server.
  2. Start Microsoft Access on the client and open a database file located on the server.
  3. Start Net Watcher on the server.

NOTE: Net Watcher is located in the Accessories group in Windows Program Manager.

  1. From the Connection menu, choose Disconnect to disconnect the client from the server.
  2. In the Database window on the client, select a table and try to open it. The database still appears to be open, even though the server has disconnected you.
