    If you are the only user in this database, close the database, and open the
    Windows Explorer to the folder where the database resides.

    See if there is a small file (only a few kb in size). If so, delete it.
    Access creates this file when the database is first opened for shared use,
    and deletes it when all users have logged out. But if the computer or
    software crashes, it does not get to clean up, so spurious locking info is
    left behind.

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!
