No, I don't think that's possible. I would suggest you create a regular table if you want multiple users to access it.

OK- so even though it is in tempdb, it will show up only in the original SPID - if you happen to close that window, then even the author can never reach it?

Yes, that's right. One the session is closed, you cannot retrieve it.

Just to clarify, you have two types of temp tables. local temp tables, that are only accesible in the module it was created, and global temp table that are accessible only in the session that creates them. That means that no other sessions (for example another user logged in) can access it.
