We need more information.  What is the name of file? If it is you  .mdb or .accdb file, have you already converted the database to a backend/frontend?  Are you in a shared environment where another user might already be using the file.
Or perhaps the file is already open in Excel or Word on your computer?

thanks. will investigate and try help users I support. hope to have a good start in new year. Suddenly shared database is inaccessible by all users except one.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
