Database Permission Settings

P: n/a
Hello all,
I'm a newbie with Access and had a (hopefully) simple question. I
have a database that is basically one table and I want to load it up on
another computer. I've made the database on my home computer. I uploaded
it (the .mdb file) to my work computer, but when I try to access it I
get the following error message:

The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'blah.mdb'. It is
already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to
view its data.
How do I grant permission to open the database on another computer?
