Sounds corrupt to me (see links below):

1) Create a backup of the corrupt database. (Just in case of)

2) Create a new database and use File/Get external data/Import to get all objects of the damaged database.

3) Try these Microsoft solutions:
Repair A97/A2000:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q109/9/53.asp
Jetcomp:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q273956
and/or read the article:
ACC2000: How to Troubleshoot Corruption in a Microsoft Access Database
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306204

4) Bit "heavier":
Access decompile:

5) Try a recovery tool:
Access recovery:
www.officerecovery.com/access/index.htm
www.mvps.org/access/tables/tbl0018.htm

6) Ask a company (will cost $$'s ! )
http://www.pksolutions.com/services.htm 

check also: http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/corruptmdbs.htm

Otherwise, double check that the user on machine JJPSP71 is actually logged out.
If they are, delete the .ldb file on their PC.

How is your database structured?

Do you have a back end and each user with a seperate front end?

If it works locally, but not on a network area, do you have permissions set correctly in the network folder?
Is there space available to let access "flex"?  (it increases and decreases in size as opened and closed - especially if you have compact on close option on)

Have all users Exit out of the database, and see if there are any unexpected .ldb files.  If there are, delete them.

Open Access on it's own.
Go to Open and select your database on the network.
In the options, click Open Exclusive.

Then see if you can get in OK.

(sounds like someone's in it, or it has a process running that hasn't finished on someone else's PC)

And then open it!
And if there still isn't an ldb file, then you've opened it exclusively and you'll never get sharing it like that.
