    Hi there

    One of the users designed a database in access 2003 and wants all the other users to open it and update its data.
    So, I’ve created a network share and gave all the users concerned the relevant permissions. They can all see the file but if it’s already open by s’one else they can’t open it. I’ve discovered that if someone elso has already opened it, the only workaround is to start msaccess first and thenopen file scroll down to the network share and open it that way.

    Any idea why the MDB file doesn’t open when you dblclick whithout needing msaccess starting first?

    Thanks in advance
