can't update/change anything in db application

P: n/a
Hi All,
In AccessXP when another user has the application open I want to change
a design or change vba code AccessXP will not let me. It give me the
message about it being opened my another user so my changes may not be
saved. I can't even export an updated form from my master copy to my
production copy if someone has it open.
Is this a feature of AccessXP? Can I change that? Is their an option I
can change? Its a real pain when I have to wait til after hours to
update the application.

ps - these are converted db applications, load the Access97 application
in AccessXP and convert it to AccessXP. Does that have anything to do
with it?

When making a change in my Access97 applications and export it to the
production copy it does it so, its not an Access thing but an AccessXP
thing.
thanks
bobh.

This was a change between Access 97 and 2000.
It is not an option; that's just the way later versions of Access work.
Yes, the old way was convenient, but it seems to be gone forever.
