Access Database is Locked by another user on network.  I need to put a new version of the database on the network.  Because database is locked, I cant put new version on network.  How do I kill their session so I can update the database.

Can you not just get them to log off?

If no one is 'physically' logged in, and there is a 'stuck' LDB file, try just deleting the LDB file.

And ... if it really is a stuck LDB file, then rebooting that system will get rid of it.

  If rebooting the server is not an option, you can use the techniques in this thread:

 To remove the lock on the LDB file.
