    Unanswered: Error 3218 "Couldn't update; currently locked"


    Scenario - VB5 app. writing and deleting to a linked table from an Access 97 database across a windows network.

    Occassionally, even if only one user is using the app., I get error 3218 when trying to delete records from this linked table.

    Any ideas why this is happening would be greatly appreciated.

    I am using DAO.

    Is the database set to Shared in Tools, Options, Advanced? What's the locking options set to (in the same Window).

    Sounds like an Access problem rather than a VB one and that's all I can think of!

    Good luck.
