    Has anyone split database into a front and back end. I've a 'locking' error
    whenever more than one computer has another version open. Its set up so that
    the front end linked tables can be shared with any PC on the same Network.

    One error message says; System has been placed in a state" can not be opened
    or locked. I thought if it was split this wouldn't happen. I need many users
    to access this database simulataenously any ideas?

    Many thanks

    Nick

    Nick,

    The concept, as developed by Micorsoft for using Access in this way, is to
    put a copy of the front-end on each users machine and have it linked to the
    backend, located on the network.

    It sounds like you split the database, but you do you place a copy of the
    mdb (or perffred mde) on EACH computer?

    IF you are mixing versions of ms-access, then the above is a requirement if
    you want any stability...
