    Unanswered: help me log people out of a database.. Not split

    I have one database that on our server that 5 people login to. Sometimes throughout the month I need then to logout so I can add, update ect.

    Is there a simple code or way I can log everyone thatís logged into my database. Iíve seen code that will log people off if the database is split; Iím not ready to split the database.

    I was thinking sometime like creating a hidden form and then do something to make the database close.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Then I would suggest you get 'ready' to split the database, before you start worrying about things like kicking users out! There's a good reason why all the code you've found to do this is based on split databases!

    Multi-users on a single, non-split database has long been recognized as a cause of repeated corruptions, as I suspect you've been told before. One would have to suppose, with five users, that a fair amount of data is being input. It is simply irresponsible, on your part, to know this and still continue down this path.
