I have an annoying problem..Or rather, I did.

Every time i tried to go to EDIT LAYOUT, a pop-up box said it couldn't find a file..and that was all she wrote. The only way I could even close

the database was by force quit.  I pondered what could be calling the database referenced???

 

I DID FIND A SOLUTION, so I thought I would share.  On the Relationships chart under Manage Database were a couple three files from an "extinct" database.  I deleted these tables and everything returned to normal. It's easy to forget a table like this that one might attach to deal with a specific issue.

 

Hopes this helps someone.
