MsAccess multi user

It's several years I use msaccess,
but now,
is it possible make a db access which could be
used at the same time from several users?
Attention!: Not simple open and consulted,
I speak about the possibility to have tables
which are only of the current user.
For example:
I have a query1 that is a creation table query,
My user1 runs Query1 and create table1 which certain filters,
at the same time user2 runs Query1 and create table1 which his filters,

I would like if user1 has his table1 different from table1 of user2.

But they open the same db file...

Is it possible without copying the db for all different users?

You can a database for each user (local database) that has it's own tables. Then you can create a shared database on a network drive where you share the common tables, queries, forms, etc just by linking the databases. In other words, you have you own tables locally and have other tables linked on your local database from the shared database. Hope you understand the general idea...

Yes,
good idea!
I need only to have the same path on all pc,
in order to not have problem with local tables connection...
If there isn't a different technical way,
(something like table properties in msAccess),
I will close the question.

This is the normal way of doing things in Access. One database serves as a frontend to the user (local database) while the other serves as a backend (databae on a network drive that is shared by multi-users).
