Locked out from MS Access database

Hi All:

Our company has been using a ms access 2000 database on a share drive,
every user logs into the database using shortcut on individual desktop
that goes to shared drive.

Now today while making changes to the security ->User & Groups, my PC
froze and when I restarted it says "You do not have permission to
access this, Contact your administrator". I deleted the .ldb file,
with no luck.

Any help is appreciated.

Download the Security FAQ from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads -- it's
the authoritative source for Access security information. Unfortunately, it
is easy to slip up and make your database so secure that even you cannot get
in (as seems to be the case here) or so insecure that most anyone can get

That's why it is such a great idea to make a backup (maybe even a couple of
backups) of both the database and the associated workgroup file before you
start making changes.

First, a brief explanation of why this has happened. I purchased, what I thought, was a fully functional program written in Access last year from a local programmer. This program was to be used as my POS for an online DVD store. It turns out that what the programmer actually gave me was a "license" to use his software. This was not the agreement we made, and he knows this. He took advantage of the fact that I knew very little about...

Good afternoon all, I have recently been trying my hand out at the ADO model as before I have only used DAO (just thought I would expand my knowledge a bit).

I used to have this...

Hi This is a "problem" I've been battling for many days and haven't been able to understand; various postings I've come across on the Internet seem to not quite provide the answer. We have a commercial (membership database) application written around Access 2002 and we are using Access 2003 to run it on Server 2003 (64 bit), and 32 bit XP Pro. The database file is locked in some way so that it can't be opened within Access, even when using...

I have 2 users who ran into a problem with a data entry program (written in Access 2003). One user was keying into one of the forms when she got the message "ACCESS Error Number: 3218 Could not update; currently locked'. About the same time, another user was keying records into a 2nd form. Even though they were on different forms, they would have added records to the same table. The 2nd user had tried to add about 28 records, the...

I have a db table that holds a list of ports. There is a column in_use that is used as a flag for whether the port is currently in use.
