Hi all. I am pulling my hair out, and would appriciate some help while i have some hair left. I have various Access DB for users to access on a server. When a user opens the DB there is a 60/40 change that it will not create a .ldb lock. I have check to ensure that the ACCess 2003 user are not opening them in "exculsive" mode, and all the users have full rights over the DB and the directory folder were it resides. I have checked everything I can think off, can anyone point me in the right direction. Cheers.
