I am developing an Access application using Access as the front end and SQL Server as the back end database with an ADP file.

In my Access VBA code, which is shown in the Code section, I get the following error when the compiler attempts the following line of code:
I use a timestamp as part of my naming convention to make all files generated unique.
No one else is using this application right now except me.

ExportedFile = "\\SPRGACSMVE" & "_" & intYearSP & "_" & Format(Now, "mmddhhnnss") & ".XLS"

The error message is as follows:

Your last change may not have been saved because an internal buffer was locked by another user (whose name was given in the previous message).
To avoid losing data, wait for the other user to finish using the record, and then click OK again.
If you click Cancel, you may lose changes that haven't been saved.

ExportedFile = "\\SPRGACSMVE" & "_" & intYearSP & "_" & Format(Now, "mmddhhnnss") & ".XLS"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 8, "tblSpACSMVE", ExportedFile, True, ""
