    when i try to open a connection with the jet 4 drivers to
    an access 97 database i cannot get the connection to work
    because of an unusual access error, which is listed as
    follows:


    The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the
    file 'C:\Documents and Settings\David Binney\My
    Documents\Visual Studio Projects\35 DBMS\DbNet.mdb'. It
    is already opened exclusively by another user, or you
    need permission to view its data.

    does anyone know how to resolve this problem, or can you
    suggest other drivers eg ODBC ones that i can use it its
    place. if suggesting others can you suggest method as
    well...

    thanks for the help..

  2. HI,

    Is the connection open and not closed in the application or there is a
    possibility that the mdb is open in MSAccess IDE.

    Regards
