you can try to use open file


Enables input/output (I/O) to a file.

Syntax

Open pathname For mode [Access access] [lock] As [#]filenumber [Len=reclength]

lock - Optional. Keyword specifying the operations restricted on the open file by other processes: Shared, Lock Read, Lock Write, and Lock Read Write.

If you are using NTFS then you can set permissions on the file which will deny access. Otherwise you have to open the file exclusively as suggested.

Access denies access to this file because the file is open for io operations.
Opening any other file will do the same.
So I have the correct answer.
