Modifications cannot be made to the database.  A sharing violation occurs when you try to save a change to a form.  When I am out of the database there are no other users attached to the database.  Why is it locked and how can I delete the LDB file?

if you have the right permission, just select it and hit delete. (no other user is using the db)

you cna open it with Word to see who the user is and the machine

Tried both of the above.  Neither worked.

1)  If I open the LDB file on the machine that host the file.  It is open by admin, but there is no actual admin account on that PC.  Is this the same as the local system account?

2) If I go to open sessions the LDB file does not show up on the list.

Reboot of the server worked.  Sometimes this is not an option.  Would have been nice to fix the problem without a reboot.
