Unanswered: Permission problems linking to excel sheet
Hello I have a database which links to a read-only excel sheet (password protected for write). My database is fine as long as no one is in the excel sheet, however if someone is in it I get the following error message:
.....It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.
I know I can easily call the person and get them off, but it there any way of preventing this, if so can someone please help me out.
my work around i link the link the sheet then I run a mktable query and turn it into a new table also I do a file check on the DateLastModified
hope this help
See clear as mud
