Possible to see who has file open?

P: n/a
Access 2000 database on Windows 2000 server. Is it possible to see
who has db open from within Access? Or from Windows 2000 Pro by
non-administrator?

I can see who has open via Server, but want to get out of that
business and let the developer do it for himself, but I don't want to
grant him admin rights to server.

Thanks.

Get the Microsoft utility LDBVIEW.EXE It is available in the download
file jetutils.exe available at
http://support.microsoft.com/default...NoWebContent=1

Your user can browse for the name of the MDB file and it will tell who is
accessing it via PC name.
