in msaccess  a user all of a sudden gets a exclusive error message. ( the changes u make may not be saved) - This only happens after the splash screen closes and an (unbound) menu form opens.
The use can sign in with same name and pw onm another machine with no problems - On the original machine though no one can log in wo error-
There is a shared system.mdw
We have given user fresh copy of .mdb - there are only links to SQL server tables which can be accessed manually-
Any ideas?

Check Tools-Options-Advanced and make sure it is set to shared not exclusive

Is the user able to enter/update data normally after clicking OK to the Exclusive Access message?

We had a similar issue with shared databases on a few computers.  In our case, the problem turned out to be related to Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0, which was attempting to add toolbar buttons to Access's menu.  We removed the add-in, and the problem was solved.  Possibly worth looking into...

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Since this looks like a machine specific issue, check for differences in software configurations between this machine and others that work (other software that might attempt to add buttons to Access's menu might have the same effect).  

Also see if the users can enter data after clicking okay (possibly many times... our users counted 31 'okays')  to the exclusive access message.

Take a look at the steps I posted at the end of that other thread.  If you can't get help from Avery in a timely fashion, you should be able to do somthing similar with Avery's Access add-in.

- Go to add/remove programs from your computers control panel
-  Look for the Avery Software
-  Once you have add/remove programs for the Avery software, look for a list of "add-ins" and find Access among them.  Remove the Access add-in.

Given the information and feedback you provided, what additional details did I need to give for an "A"?  Please read the grading guidelines here:

mbizup:
I'm not sure where you want me to look for a list of add-ins.  I don't see anything in Add/Remove programs.  Nothing that specifically says 'add-ins' inside the MS Office setup.  Inside Access there is nothing listed in the Add-In Manager.  The only thing I see on the program list is under Office Tools, MS Access Snapshot Viewer.  I'll be happy to look wherever you say.
