I'm trying to deploy and update files and I ran into this problem on a Windows 7 64 bit machine....on the WIN7 machine, in directory DB, my file at one time contained data X,Y,Z. On my XP machine (were I do my VB programming) I deleted the data X,Y,Z creating an empty database. So...on the WIN7 machine, directory DB, I delete the old file and copy the new empty file. I open the new file and there is data X,Y,Z!....ok I move THAT new file from directory DB to a new directory DB1, open the file...and it's the EMPTY file like it's suppose to be! Any clue as to what is going on????
