I know this is old, and it's probably answered somewhere that's obvious to
everyone but me, but I can't find it.
Is there a known problem with multiple Access97 users sharing a single
database file on Samba? Is there a workaround?
I've got a user desperately trying to replace NT as their office file
server, but Access is very important to the stuff they do. One user can
open up the database (on the Samba server) just fine, but the second and
subsequent users get an error from Access indicating that the file is
already in use. I've had him upgrade to 2.0.5a, and he still gets the same
I'm stumped, and I'm hoping that it's either:
1) Something hopelessly stupid that I've missed, or
2) Something that's known as a problem and will be fixed sometime (2.0.6? )
Thanks for any insight you can offer.
