    After updating to XP SP2 our Access databases will not allow multiple users.
    Any idea how to fix this?

    Be sure that you're not defaulting to open the database exclusively.
    Check Tools... Options... Advanced and see if you have the default
    open mode set to Exclusive.

    Note also that XP does not permit multiple users changing the *DESIGN*
    of a database at the same time (though multiple users can update the
    data in tables). A split database design avoids this problem since
    each user has their own copy of the frontend and can change forms,
    reports, etc. in their own database, without interfering with other

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
