trying to copy Access database from XP computer to Win 98 computer

  1. "I have access 2000 on several computers. I mainly use my laptop and I would like to be able to totally replace the versions on other computers periodically so they are in effect backups. Sometimes I might do things on one of the backups that I would then want to transfer to my laptop. At first I was copying the DB on a CDrom and overwriting, an
    this makes the 2nd one read-only. Now I have set up a LAN, thinking that I could do it more efficiently this way. However
    though I am the sole user of the whole network, I can't copy the database to the other computers, as I, the sole user and Admin do not have permissions! I never set up any permissions. I wish I had the problem of "Dix". It is just the opposite. I can't integrate use at all
    I really don't understand all this stuff. I never set up any permissions, administrators, groups, users or passwords, and don't even know where to begin. In fact somewhat afraid as I see all the posts from people who set up stuff and are now locked out because something is set wrong. I am just one person trying to network my computers, which no one else is using. Now I find that besides ACCESS problems, I can't even move many other files from one computer to another or change file names remotely or do hardly anything for which I wanted to network them for

    (reply)<<When you want to save or modify a file that resides on another computer (over the LAN), you might have a
    problem, because that user account that you used to log into the computer you are sitting at means NOTHING to the
    operating system on the OTHER comptuer, unless both computers are joined to the domain, AND you used a domain
    account to log onto that local computer (as opposed to a 'local' account). By default, if the operating system
    on that other computer doesn't know who you are, it will DENY the action you are trying to perform.>

    Me again "I didn't get very far. On this XP Pro laptop, I found that the account was already not disabled.
    My Aptiva is the main computer I want to access and then I found that in its Win98, there is no "manage" under "My computer" Then I went to my XPhome P4PE I went to the manage and it did not have a user o
    group field under tools or anywhere.
    So basically I have gotten nowhere
