Novice: Requires knowledge of the user interface on single-user computers.


SYMPTOMS

If you open a database as read-only, all other users attempting to open the same database as Exclusive are forced to open it read-only also. This applies to multiple copies of Microsoft Access running on one workstation as well as in the multiuser environment.

RESOLUTION

To avoid opening the database in read-only mode, do not select Exclusive when opening the second instance of the database.

STATUS

This behavior no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 7.0.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Behavior


  1. Start Microsoft Access and open the sample database NWIND.MDB with the Read Only check box selected and the Exclusive check box cleared.
  2. Minimize the first instance of Microsoft Access and start a second instance of Microsoft Access.
  3. In the second instance of Microsoft Access, open the sample database NWIND.MDB with the Exclusive check box selected and the Read Only check box cleared. Note that the database opens as read-only, even though you did not select the Read Only check box.
