Database engine can not lock table

    The following code produces the error: The database engine could not lock
    table 'printout' because it is already in use by another person or process.

    Any ideas why I am getting this error and how I can fix it? Thanks!

    Dim tblName As TableDef
    Dim strFieldName As String
    Dim intFieldType As Integer
    Dim lngAttributes As Long
    Dim intMaxLength As Double
    Dim tmpNewField As Field

    Set tblName = dbMyDB.TableDefs("printout")

    strFieldName = "ID"
    intFieldType = dbLong
    lngAttributes = dbAutoIncrField
    intMaxLength = 100

    Set tmpNewField = tblName.CreateField(strFieldName, intFieldType,

    tmpNewField.Attributes = lngAttributes

    tblName.Fields.Append tmpNewField
