Opened exclusively error on split database?

Opened exclusively error on split database?
Views: 41
I have a multi-user database. I've split it into a front-end and back-end. Distributed copies of the front end to each user.

However if I try to open, in any view, it comes up with the 'Opened exclusively by another user' error.

When 2 or more people are trying to open a report they get " . . Access Database cannot open or write to the file. it is already opened exclusively by another user". The file is setup as "shared" and "read only".

I am using and ODBC engine. The act of opening the report does not create, modify or destroy any file. How do I set it up so 2 or more people can open the report? .

Just moved several access dbs to a new location. When I opened one of them, which contains queries, I cannot run them. I get an error message stating the Microsoft Access database engine cannot open or write to the file "x".

It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view and write its data. I noticed the file path is pointing to the original location and not the new location.

I was wondering if it was possible to split a database and have the backend on a website of some sort, so each time a Front end is opened it reads from the internet and not something like a sharepoint.
 

Making changes on the exact same copies on split database. Trouble

Making changes on the exact same copies on split database. Trouble Icon
My database is split into front and backend. The way it's set up is that there are two front end copies. One for the administrator and one for the general users. There are multiple general users. When two general user's copies are opened, any changes made to the database by anyone such as sorting record in databasheet from A to Z and saving such configuration, or designing forms and stuff(simply right-clicking design tab) is not possible as users will get a warning msg saying that you don't not have exclusive access to the database because there is another copy opened somewhere else. Is there a way around this without saving different copies for EACH general user
 

Can't split a database

Can't split a database Icon
I am currently trying to split my database for my users (since there are 10 of them) but I am getting an error message.

It says the following:

Database Splitter
The database engine could not lock table 'T_ABEA' because it is already in use by another person or process."
 

Password Protect the Back End of a Database

Password Protect the Back End of a Database Icon
There are two parts to the following video tutorial explaining how to password protect the back end of your Microsoft Access database where your first need to split the database and then exclusively open the back end database to apply an encrypted password. You can also manually link and re-link tables from other databases which will in turn need to be individually password protected should you require the added protection for the more sophisticated system.

I have an Access database file with excel macro. When I run the excel file within Access, I am getting the error "The Microsoft Office Access database engine cannot open or write to the | file "name of query".

It is already opened and exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data". I've verify that no one else has the file open. I am running Access 2010.
 

Database Splitter - Subscript out of range

Database Splitter - Subscript out of range Icon
I have mostly done very rudimentary uses of Access to date for my own isolated use. I have a database that my client would like to share across multiple users. We are having difficulty with table locking just having whomever open the shared file.

I have tried to use the "Database Splitter", but with no success. It creates a ". . .be.mdb" file, but before it is finished displays the "Subscript out of range" message.

I followed the instructions and copied the database file to my laptop to split it, but that gave the error.

I tried to split the database from the "shared drive" on the network. Same error.

What else can I do? What might be causing this error?
