    I make changes in design view but they will not save. If I close the
    program, it asks me if I want to save but clicking yes does nothing. The
    program will not close until I click no. This is a data base made in Access
    95 that has been converted to 97 file extension. The database works fine as
    far as entering and finding data. Of course, the help files are of no use...
    Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. If the database .mdb file is out on a network, make a copy of it and put it
    on your PC. Can you make and save changes now?
