    I'm locked out from an Access mdb created originally by myself.
    I get a warning like I can only open it in Read Only because it's opened by
    someone else at the same time.
    Is there a way to trace down the user so I can alert him or her to get out
    of the mdb.

    I need to resume the right of changing the mdb.

    If you think there might be other reasons which prevent me from changing the
    mdb, please advise how I can get rid of the error message.

    Hi DWZ,

    This can happen if there is a left over locking database file (*.ldb)
    hanging around. The following KB article discusses causes of this, which
    include the last user exiting does not have delete privlege, or the database
    is starting to corrupt:

    Try downloading the AppUser tool from the MVPS website:
