    Unanswered: Secure Database Problem

    I was demonstrating a sample secured database which worked fine. I closed the progam and access and now every time I try to open it, the user logon comes up and then I receive an error that the database is currently open.

    It's not open on any machine. I am stumped. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Two things I do whenever I have this problem --

    1. Delete the lock file of the Access database.
    2. Open the database exclusively

    Hope this helps.

    I have deleted all of the .ldb's I could find.

    Haven't tried opening in exclusive mode yet. Will try when I go to work today.

    the issue had to be a corrupted database. I installed the backup copy and that solved the issue.

    There are times when it pays to be paranoid and make a daily backup and then a backup of the backup.
