I have the above code in a VBA module inside Access.

I also have read/write access to the database (and its folder) that was opened prior to this code via the following code

    Dim Ac As Object
    Set Ac = CreateObject("Access.Application")

    Ac.Visible = False
    Ac.OpenCurrentDatabase ("\\Fileserver\Everyone\Engineering Database\Database\NM Probill Database\NM Probill Database.accdb")

My problem is, 1/10 times, the database is opened as 'Read-Only' while no-one else is accessing it. This is creating problems for the appending query above.

How do I resolve this? How do I make it force open as 'read-write'?

Thanks for your time!
