Post your question to a community of 468,766 developers. It's quick & easy.

Possible to see who has file open?

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.
