Sounds as if it's a local Access97 installation problem at that site, or
a case of corrupted files. I've been using Access 97 for a year without
any shutdown errors. The best solution is to click on the Details button
when the "...will shutdown message" appears, copy the detailed text, and
then consult Microsoft's Internet Support pages or telephone support for

On more than one instance, however, I have been surprised to select topics
via the Access97 help index only to be rewarded by a blank secondary screen!
Have never encountered blank help screens in any other active help system.

Good luck.
