    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
