Exclusive lock on SQL Server table through ADO!

Is there a way I can perform exclusive lock on SQL Server table through ADO! I need to do that and no any other user can deal with this table till I remove this locking! I cannot find a way to do that so far, I would appreciate any help. Alternatively (which is no so good for me), I tried to use the Mode property at the connection level and set it to Mode = adModeShareExclusive! But I could I open the DB from other ADO connection! (It didn't help)

Here's a file for you over the net:

Description: The purpose of this class is make easy to generate ConnectionStrings to open ADO databases. Just setting some parameters you can easy open Access MDB with or without password, SQL server using username and password or Windows NT login, DBase III files, Excel Worksheets, Oracle and ODBC. Plus, with a minimum of modification you can easily add support to any other database. Of course that you always can hardcode your connections strings but this class will make this for you on a very friendly way. I'm updated with minor changed and translation of comments ...

Not very sure if this helps or not, but here it is anyway.

That's it!
