Hi All,

We have a MS Access 2000 database connecting to psgl 7.4.5 database 
over the Internet using ODBC drivers. The connection works 
sometimes and then fails sporadically and unpredictably. When it fails, 
it could be just opening a table or it could be in a bound form. When 
it fails, we sometimes get an ODBC connection error. Sometimes, the 
table opens up with each cell filled with #delete#. I'm looking for 
some general troubleshooting guidelines.

What makes this frustrating is that we have other experience using 
essentially the same techniques that have much greater stability. We 
are reasonably proficient with both pg and Access in general, and have 
naive to moderate  experience, but until now good luck with the odbc 

I could say more about what we have checked or have suspected. 
Bandwidth? Table relations? Presence of text/memo fields? nature of ID 
fields?  For initial post, I think I will just see what pops up. Very 

Thanks for any tips, experience, suggestions.
