I have an Access database in which I need to create an ADO connection.

This is the code:

Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & CurrentDb.Name, "", "" 

This is the error that appears when the code is run:

"The database has been placed in a state by user 'Admin' on machine 'MYCOMPUTER' that prevents it from being opened or locked.

I am doing this wrong?  How do you create an ADO connection to the CurrentDB?
