con.open currentproject.accessconnection

I get runtime error '-2147467259 (80004005)':

the database has been placed in a state by user 'admin' on machine
'fuj1' that prevents it from being opened or locked.




Private Sub Command6_Click()

   'Create a Catalog object
   
   Dim con As New ADODB.Connection
   con.Open CurrentProject.AccessConnection
   
   Dim Cat As New ADOX.Catalog
   Cat.ActiveConnection = con
 
 Dim oldn As String
 Dim newn As String
 Dim tbln As String
 
tbln = "test"
oldn = "dog101"
newn = "dog"

   'Create a table object
   
   Dim Tbl As ADOX.Table
   Set Tbl = New ADOX.Table
  
   Set Tbl = Cat.Tables(tbln)
   Tbl.Columns(oldn).Name = newn
 
   Set Cat = Nothing
   Set Tbl = Nothing


End Sub

how about using dao to change it eg

 CurrentDb.TableDefs(tbln).Fields(oldn).Name = newn

Check that there is no pending saves to be done to the schema before that code runs. If there is anything that needs to be saved (code edits), form edits e.t.c it can all produce that error.
