Win 7 has a problem with copying and pasting new files with same name not overriding old files. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't know where to report this problem to Windows 7, but instead will publish it here so at least maybe someone else has run into this problem.

    When I try to copy a Win Access file (.mdb) to another folder with the same "old file name" the new file opens up with the "old file name" data.  I have tried deleting the old file and then copy it.  I also used shift-delete to permanently delete the old file, but the new file still shows up as the "old file" even though the attributes like Size shows in windows explorer the size of what the new file is.

    Anybody run into this problem with Win 7?  Do you know if Microsoft is going to fix this???

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    Which edition of Access are you using?

     

    I recommend you also ask this question in Office forum, it’s more professional on the Access file issue.

     

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other communities who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. 

     

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!

     

    Best Regards,

  •  Miya ... I already posted to other forums.  However I have found that not only Access files have the problem, but entire folders with assorted file types have the same problem!!!!

  • Refer to this thread I replied to you http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproui/thread/40eefdbd-da30-4edd-80f1-c5428fc79bf9

     

    The Access 2000 is not compatible with Windows 7.
