I'm making a program (in Excel VBA) that mulitple users will be using at the same time that involves manipulation of an Access database via ADODB. I was told that since the program will be used by multiple users on the same network, I might run into problems. I was wondering if muliple users accessing the same database on the network might create problems, and if anyone knows of any web resources that discuss the problem and how to handle it.
My boss wasn't too specific... I'll be programming in a front-end in excel, that uses records stored in Access. I figure that the program will be retrieving information about 85 percent of the time, and updating/inserting information the rest of the time...
The network here is a small one... one server, 4 computers, each running windows2000 Pro. I was told to do some research into any problems that may arrise if multiple users access that same database simultaneously.
The code will be accessing the database using the SQL queries with the ADODB connections.
I wish I could give more information, but thats about as much as I know...
Have had as meny as 15 user at one time no problem
this was for a telemarking program i wrote
just got the computer to copy the screen to each user computer on start up.
hope this help
See clear as mud
the aim is store once, not store multiple times

Also, for anyone else who might read this thread, I figured out that one of my biggest problems was my search method. I kept searching for 'multiple user' and then other key words, without mucgh luck. I eventually came across a page that made it obvious that the best way to search was for the word 'concurrent users' or 'concurrency'... after that, finding my answers was extremely easy...
