.mdb file locks up at times. Permission settings question

P: n/a
I have a employee.mdb document that locks up for an unknown reason at
times. Almost all employees are set to read only (Everyone in
security setting), so I would assume that one of these users created
the lock up off of an active server page that hits the database. The
reason I say that is that I believe the problem occurs when a user
that has write privileges (Managers in security setting) has the .mdb
open. Also, and I'm not sure why, but I can never see the
employee.ldb on the folder so I never could check that (even when I
have the .mdb open). Anyway, I believe that the lock up is most
likely caused by the permissions problem with the folder.

Anyway, here are the details and then my question. The four current
groups are Administrators, Everyone, Managers, and System under the
Security tab.

I guess my main problem is that I'm not positive about the correct
combination settings to use for the web sharing, sharing and security
areas. My goal is that everyone can run the active server page that
accesses the mdb but not be able to open or view the employee.mdb off
any share. However, Managers should be able to open the share and
change the .mdb. Administrators obviously should have full control to

Any advise?
