Hi preethamonline,
I didn't see any error here. The only things is you open access file during the application accessing the db.
You can't open it at the same time your application is connecting to this database.

Hi preethamonline,
Lastly, make sure you've granted enough permission for your application to access this database if the proposed not working.
Add IUSR_<COMPUTER_NAME> to the folder that the database resides.
