Well here is the way I do it.

 iFileHndl: Integer;


iFileHndl := FileOpen('ThePath\File', fmShareExclusive or fmOpenReadWrite);
if iFileHndl < 1 then
     ShowMessage('File is already opened');

TIBDatabaseInfo component.

Returns the names of all users currently attached to the database.

property UserNames: TStringList;


Use UserNames to return the names of all users currently attached to the database.
