I assume that you're talking about the "database is corrupt" problem that occurs
when a second person attempts to open a database?

We've seen this, but have yet to find a workaround.  I also haven't had much time
to diagnose it and determine what causes it.

It's purely an ACT! thing, Access databases and other types of shared access
work fine, but ACT! is doing something in a broken manner.
