Doyce - I'm glad you find it useful. I use it on all my projects. I remember the nightmare of keeping 400+ users updated before I figured this method out.

What's even better is that I use your batch file distribution setup to update the FE for my users with new features and bug fixes. Did I say bug fixes? I meant only meant features like Microsoft. LOL.

I have a similar setup and occasionally find that someone's front end is not working properly and so I delete their front end and reload a copy off the server and it fixes their problems too. Glad it's working for you now.

Out of curiosity I checked to see what file everyone had on their comp. I have a back file that checks the version, if it's different than what the user has, it deletes their file and copies a new one, so everyone should be on the same file.
I checked and everyone had a file with the same name in the folder it's supposed to be in. So as sort of a "why not?" move, I changed the version and told everyone to log out and log back in, and now it works for everyone. I have no explanation for this, everyone had the same file with the same properties to begin with, and it worked for 2 but not others. All I did was change the name of the source file, updated the batch file to match, and it works for everyone now. *shrug*
