Multiple connections to access DB

I will post some code here.
I am creating multi threads to help my process go along faster.

When I am filling one of my datagrid i am getting an error stating:connection open and executing

I feel that this error is because it is creating another connection to the database.

How does one allow multiple connections to the same access database at the same time.  The connections are only  SELECT queries no update, delete, or adds.

This is going to be on a server with muliple users connecting

Is it because both your OleDbDataAdapter1 and OleDbSelectCommand1 are using the same connection...
