Exclusive Open Mode Not Working

Can someone please help with this problem. When referring to opening a
database in Exclusive mode the Access 2003 help says:

"Under Default open mode, do one of the following:
If you want others to be able to open the Microsoft Access database at
the same time you have it open, click Shared.
If you want sole access to the Access database when you have it open,
click Exclusive."
From my experience and from what I have read on the newsgroup this

simply doesn't work. I have a networked database that can be opened on
2 machines at the same time when I have the option set to "exclusive" .
Added to this, the "exclusive" option seems to be machine specific and
not related to the database that I'm trying to stop multiple users
opening.

What am I missing here? There is obviously more to it than what the
Help is telling me.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have encountered a problem that I am hoping someone can shed some light on. I have a multi-user A97 app. All users have a personal front-end MDE accessing a shared back-end.

Hi gang, Hopefully someone can help us out. In short - Access 2002, db split into a front end and back end. It appears that our backend db is locked. Our form bound to one table won't allow new records to be created. When I open the table up directly, attempts at a new record result in an error stating that the table is locked by a user (me) who has opened the database in exclusive mode (from my computer). The problem is that I do...

I have inherited a bunch of dbs which are are shared among a small group in my dept. We typically use the dbs to write queries to extract data, usually dumping it into Excel. Most dbs originated in MsAccess 97 or prior and have been converted to 2003. On occassion user 1 will open a db. When user 2 opens the db it will not let user 2 modify macros and what not. I can understand this and realize we could split the db; it is not worth ...

Hi, I need to link a mdb file and make sure it opens in a non-exclusive mode. I looked for a similar post but none was answered. I know there is a specific param to add to the command line to get the mdb to open in exclusive mode (/excl). I'm looking for the exact opposite.

One of my clients has asked me to make a change to one of their Access applications. The application is a Front End/Back End standard app. I didn't develop it, but looking at it tells me that it was done entirely using the Wizards. There is no log-in procedure. They want to amend it so that only one person can be logged in at any one time. So, if Joe Bloggs tries to open the application, and Fred Jones has already connected, Joe...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
