Opened exclusively error on split database?
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.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
In Access 2003/XP/2000/97, I tried modifying some of the objects in my Access database and I received an error message stating that I needed to open the database exclusively. What does this mean and how do I open a database exclusively?
I have an access file in the shared folder in the intranet, some guy opened and I think he tried to design something, so that, the file is exclusively opened somewhere in the office, there are a lot of computers, so I don't know who is this guy, but the file is like that since yesterday. every time that I try to do a modification it shows a message:
"you don't have exclusively access to the database at this time ."
Is there any way to exclusively hard open the file as I need to design something and it is
I'm getting the following error when trying to open my database exclusively.
"You can't open 'db' for exclusive use because another user has the database open or because you do not have permissions to open exclusively."
I'm about 99.9% sure no one else has this database open and about 97.9% sure that my permissions haven't changed since last friday when I was able to open the database exclusively.
Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening?
I'm happy if there is a property here instead raising an error and trapping it. Kindly share the solution whatever it is please
In Access 2007, I tried modifying some of the objects in my Access database and I received an error message stating that I needed to open the database exclusively. What does this mean and how do I open a database exclusively?
I have a split database with an ACCDE Fronte end and a ACCDB back end. All users have access 2007. Through the whole development process I have been able to access the database with no issues. I sent a copy of the FE databases to the trainer so she could create training content. She also had no issues. Now we have been putting the FE onto users desktops and they keep getting error messages. The message they receive is below.
The Microsoft Office Access database engine cannot open or write to the file S:\.File location. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view and write its data.
What am I missing. Is this something that I can give permission to? I did nothing special with the trainer and it worked fine
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.
I have a database that needs to be shared among several users. The optimal solution is the split the database to avoid corruption. However, when I try to split the database it gives me this error.
Operation is not supported for this type of object.
Can anyone tell me why I would be getting this error
