i have an access application on form load i have this particular code that checks if a certain table exists if it does then drop it and insert into it making it a new table, if it doesn't exist then just insert into the table. but when i run the form itself it says:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Call Copy
End Sub

Sub Copy()
If DoesTblExist("LoadTableFinal") Then
CurrentDb.Execute "DROP TABLE LoadTableFinal", dbFailOnError
CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT [dbo_Load Table].* INTO LoadTableFinal FROM [dbo_Load Table];"
CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT [dbo_Load Table].* INTO LoadTableFinal FROM [dbo_Load Table];"
End If
End Sub

Function DoesTblExist(sTableName As String) As Boolean
   Dim db   As DAO.Database
   Dim tdf  As TableDef
On Error GoTo Error_Handler
   'Initialize our variable
   DoesTblExist = False
   Set db = CurrentDb()
   Set tdf = db.TableDefs(sTableName)
   DoesTblExist = True  'If we made it to here without triggering an error
                        'the table exists
   On Error Resume Next
   Set tdf = Nothing
   Set db = Nothing
   Exit Function
   If Err.Number = 3265 Then
      'If we are here it is because the table could not be found
      MsgBox "MS Access has generated the following error" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Error Number: " & _
      Err.Number & vbCrLf & "Error Source: DoesTblExist" & vbCrLf & "Error Description: " & _
      Err.Description, vbCritical, "An Error has Occured!"
   End If
   Resume Error_Handler_Exit
End Function

is there a way i can load the application deleting all the locks via code if not what is causing the table to be locked without any activity performed on it.
