    I have a huge mailing list database that I created on one computer with only
    one user. It is now a year later and time to send out more mailings and I
    get an error:
    "Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and
    another user are attempting to change the same data at the same
    time."

    I am the only user that "attempted to change" the data and it won't get any
    farther than that message.

    Frustration Relief?

    During the year did you upgrade operating systems to something like Windows
    2000 Pro or Windows XP Professional? If either, did you implement NTFS? If
    so, it is possible the folder where the database resides does not have the
    proper permissions.

    We did nothing different with the computer such as upgrating OS or
    re-formatting. I checked permissions and it should work, it just
    doesn't...grrr.

    Thanks for the advice though.

    Dear dthetech:

    You may be dealing with some sort of corruption. These links might help:

    And.. a quote from a post by the redoubtable Mr. John Vinson (MVP):

    This often happens when an old "database lock" is left over from
    (e.g.) a previous crash. Get out of the database altogether and look
    for a file with the same filename as the .mdb file but with a .ldb
    extension (I think it will always be in the same subdirectory). Delete
    it.

    If this doesn't solve the problem, create a new, empty database and
    use File... Get External Data... Import to import everything from this
    database. Check the new database, if it's ok delete the old one and
    rename the new one. This will give you a clean set of systems tables
    and should resolve the problem.

    John W. Vinson[MVP]

    End quote....
