    Unanswered: Access.LockFile.9

    I've seen these lockfiles come and go as the database is being used. What causes them to NOT go away and how do I make them go away.

    Usually if an app was not closed properly like using task manager or some kind of crash.

    If no one is in the app then simplay delete it.

    I've tried to delete it but I get a file sharing violation error. I've even tried to delete the associated .mdb but I can't even delete that. I've tried from DOS and still can't. I've rebooted etc.....
