    By default, Access databases are opened in shared mode. Simply put the
    database in a public location and let the users open it.

    If that does not answer your question, then post back with more than a
    one-sentence request and perhaps we can help you further. Explain what is
    happening that causes you to think the database can't be accessed by more
    than one user.

    You want to split the MDB into a front end containing the queries,
    forms, reports, macros and modules with just the tables and
    relationships. The FE is copied to each network users computer. The
    FE MDB is linked to the tables in the back end MDB which resides on a
    server. You make updates to the FE MDB and distribute them to the
    users, likely as an MDE.

    See the "Splitting your app into a front end and back end Tips" page
    at http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/splitapp/ for more info. See the
    Auto FE Updater downloads page
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/autofe.htm to make this relatively
    painless.. The utility also supports Terminal Server/Citrix quite
