Two of our users having been jointly using a MS Access database since it was created back in 2002.  For some reason, today they can’t both use the database at the same time.  When one user tries to open the database when the other user has it open it gets a error message that states

“The database has been placed is a state by user “admin” on machine “LAURA-XP” that prevents it from being opened or locked”.  

As far as I can tell nothing has been changed and all the network share and security settings are what they should be.  Any suggestions???
