When I open a Access program it gives me the following error
Database Connection Check Failed [-2147467259 - The database has been placed in a state by user 'ADMIN' on machine 'Kristy' that prevents it from being opened or locked.

It only happens on the one machine and I suspect it has someting to do with security settings on the pc - can anyone help.

It could possibly be corrupt. Have u tried a compact/repair and decompile?

Other thing, is this a shared database? does the user have access to create in the folder where the backend db is?

Im assuming DB is setup for shared and not exclusive open? (found in tools/options)
