Access 2000 mdb suddenly says "The Microsoft database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time." It is a table and no users are connected. I moved the mdb to a new location, same message. Never happened before. Tried to link a new database to the table in the unopenable mdb and I get the same message!
Urgent need to get back in!

When the database is closed, see if there is any file called databasename.ldb in the same folder.
If there is, delete it and then try again.

Hello peter57r,

Sounds like corruption, but if you've tried JetComp then I'd assume that your db is pretty much hosed. You can try a repair service, but if you intend on doing this then make a COPY of the database before you do anything else.

Here's a couple:
