Hello JaredHess -
I haven't used RH6 Trial but if it is anything like RH5, perhaps this will help.
RH keeps track of your project with MS Access '97 DB files. Find the file "ProjectName.cpd" where "ProjectName" is the name of the project (duh!). I have a project named "Help" and the db file is named "Help.cpd".
COPY that file to a safe place!!! Back at the project, rename the file extension to ".mdb" - mine is now "Help.mdb" - now open the file in Access. You can convert to the current version of Access (if you aren't using '97) but you must SAVE AS a '97 version after making changes, then rename the extension back to ".cpd".
Scroll down to CompileOptions (a table) - double-click to open.
Clear out any value in the BuildtagExpression column and save.
Save as Access '97.
Open project and see if it worked.
EDIT: Just thinking that this might not be the answer but give it a try. Be sure to back up the original project in total!
Might need to look into the "ProjectName.pss" file (plain text file), too...
...maybe I should cancel this post entirely!
Right click the folder with the build tag.
Click Apply Conditional Build Tag.
Clear the check box for the appropriate build tag.
I hope this works. I'm too chicken to open Access. :-)
In the RH topics pane, select the folder.
Select all topics in the folder.
Right-click and select properties.
Open the Advanced tag.
Uncheck all conditional tags. If the checkboxes are gray, it means some are not tagged. Click once to check all, click again to uncheck all.
When finished, click Apply. Do not click OK when you are doing a batch task in the properties dialog.
Lori and Harvey have much better solutions - but it is fun to poke around the inner working of a program. 8^)
Wow.... Thanks everyone! Very helpful info!
