I am converting from 2003 to 2010.  I am getting an error "Could not use O;\.... drive in use".  It is not that the database is open as I checked for ldb file.  Is there anything else I can check.

When you do what, specifically?

If in addition to you upgrading from 2003 to 2010, your Network configs may have also changed.

Check with your Network Admin to make sure that path:
O:\....
...is valid and that you have full permissions to it.

Will repost again next week - getting ready for long weekend.  The code in the VBA saves the file to the drive with a date in the name when a button is clicked.  Now someone not converted did have the file open.  I will also check again to see if he can save file again as we did not test that today, because I did not think of it.

 He can save a word doc to the file folder.  I had him check.  I googled that permission may be an issue.  I am stumped.

I found out more that they are using the Quick Access Toolbar to try to save the database and that is when they get the error.
