    Unanswered: Locked User

    I am getting the below error when I try to open a database. Is there something that I can do to allow access to the system?

    The database has been placed in a state by user 'Admin' on machine "*********" that prevents it from being opened or locked.

    I've seen that error when Access closes abnormally, such as a power failure. In that case, what I needed to do was get into Windows and delete the .ldb (database locking) file Access creates when a database is open. Sometimes I was successful, sometimes not. Have you tried that?
