Database programming with multithreads

I developed an database application using VC++ and Micorsoft Access driver as the ODBC source. There are 2 threads in the application both accessing the same table. The first thread writes data in the table and the second thread reads and deletes data from the table. Here is a snapshot of the code of the second thread:

while (!attackRecSet->IsEOF())
{
      .
      .
      .
      .
      .
      .
      try
      {
            attackRecSet->Delete();
            attackRecSet->MoveNext();
      }                                          //try
      catch(CDBException *e)
      {
            MessageBox(NULL, e->m_strError, "Error", MB_OK);
            e->Delete();
      }                                          //catch            
}                                                //while      

An error message occurs because of the delete function and the thread stops working. the error message is:

" Could not update; currently locked by user 'admin' on machine ISLAM_COMPUTER'. "

and when I press OK the following message occurs for ever (it reoccurs if I press the OK button):

" Invalid cursor position; no keyset defined. "

If I commented the delete function the thread will work perfectly. I searched the MSDN for an explanation but with no use. Could anyone tell where could I find an explanation for this error.
