    Hey all,

    I have at least two user's that access a 212 MB Access database. It was working fine up to a few days ago. Now they are having some funky stuff happening. Using both or either Access 2000 and Access 2003 they are getting this error message some times when they try to open the database:

    "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. Any changes you make may not be saved."

    This happens to multiple users. When they access the database a .ldb file appears indicating it is locked. Some times the user can make changes and some times not. The file is located in a place similar to this: G:\share\subfolder\atc board database.mdb

    I've Google'd the error message and haven't found anything that really fixes the issue. Any thoughts?

    Has one of the users set up a Short cut where the command line is using the Exclusive option?
    Have you Compacted and Repaired the database?

    Thanks for the ideas. I don't know about either case you bring up. I'll check into them and get back to you.

    Also check by opening the .ldb file with Word which users are using the database.
