Though I am very computer literate I have no experience with Access. I was trying to do a small favor for co-workers that has turned into days of confusion. Here is what I need to do: There is the desktop with the access database (.mdb) and there is a laptop with the same exact database on it. All I need to do is copy the updated database from the desktop and place it on the notebook so that the database on the notebook will be updated. Then in a month or two I will need to do the reverse. The computers are in two different locations and not networked. I did a backup of the database and copied it to a thumb drive took it to the laptop and opened it however the then opened database only shows what was on the laptop all along the data entered for June is still missing. I tried again to do the back up and made sure the June data displayed when I opened it on the desktop but then took that file to the laptop and opened it from the thumb drive and once again the file with the updated database with the June entries opens and through May data is there but June is not. What am I missing here?? Any chance it's something simple. Suggestions and/or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Guess I am somewhat trying to merge/update the database. A former co-worker assisted them once in the past and said something about needing to copy two files (two backups?) and something about the database used excel as well. Like I said anything but access and I could probably figure it out. It seems what I am trying to do should be quite simple.
