Access VBA application: Placed in a State that prevents it from being opened or locked

I am developing an Access 2013 application. In testing, the first time I run through my process, it works. When I try to run the application a second time, I get the message,   "The database has been placed in a state...that prevents it from being opened or locked."  

I am developing this on my laptop.  There is no network, or multiple users involved.  The application retrieves data from a SQL Server database and copies it into an Access table.   The error shown in the attached image occurs at this statement:   cnDest.Open CurrentProject.Connection

  Dim cnDest As New ADODB.Connection
 cnDest.Open CurrentProject.Connection

If I close access and open it up again, the error is gone and I can run the process again...but that is not a fix for the problem.  I researched on the web...nothing conclusive.

Thanks for your help

Just use CurrentProject.Connection   There is no need to use cnDest .

are you closing the cnDest after using it?

Yes, I close it...the end of my procedure has

Set SourceRs = Nothing
Set cnDest = Nothing

I will try to redo things without even using cnDest

Keep in mind that the point of using CurrentProject.Connection is that you get to use Access's own ADO connection object, so you don't need to do your own.

If you want your own because you want to change the connection properties, then you'd specify the provider and all the properties, not use Access's connection.
