I am trying to go the site that a database supports while that database is open and the table is open. I have written an app where i could that before. However , this new app does not work, it generates this error

Error Executing Database Query.  
[Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket][Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The table 'projects' is already opened exclusively by another user, or it is already open through the user interface and cannot be manipulated programmatically.  
 
The error occurred in C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\prosvcs\internal2.cfm: line 63
Called from C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\prosvcs\internal2.cfm: line 1

Do you have an upgraded version of the database software?
Or, for that matter, ColdFusion?

ACCESS does not allow access via the web connection to a database file that is already open manually.

You need to use a different database to do what you are trying to do  since access does not allow this.

If the database is open - even if the tables are not - you will get that error because Access doesn't allow web access to a database mdb file when it is open through windows

Then you are lucky because Micosoft even says that it is by design that it should not allow this.

I guess it depends on the DSN, but in general if you want to do something like this I would recommend moving to a real database system
