I normally use Access 2007 and have run into the File Sharing Lock Count issue and have fixed this using by changing the Registry (HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0
Access Connectivity Engine\Engines\Ace\MaxLocksPerFile)

I do not see this sequence when working with Access 2010.

I suggest you use VBA to change this setting on a 'per session' basis only, and not mess with the Registry for this, which my not be possible on some user machines.  

Put this at the beginning of your code for a temporary override of the Default:
DAO.DBEngine.SetOption dbmaxlocksperfile, 25000  ' or higher if necessary

This works very well  ... in any version of Access.
