    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

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!
