XP professional, Office 2003. Created shortcuts for various Access (mdb) files on desktop. Double click a shortcut to open file. File opens Ok, but with a message 'Windows cannot find file XXX. Make sure you typed the file etc etc.....' If I navigate to the folder where the files are and doble-click the actual file to open it directly, there is no Windows error message. MDE files, for which there are also shortcuts, are not affected, nor are any other Office files. Anyone have an explanation?
