How can I make the database multiuser?

P: n/a
Only one person can open the database. The user who tries to open it
at the same time gets "read only." That same user can open it write
access fine when the other user closes the database. I just can't have
more than one user. Any ideas? Thank you.

I've seen behaviour like that when the users did not have permission to
create files in the folder where the .mdb file resides. The first
person in could not create the .ldb file so the .mdb was opened and
write-locked. The second person in was forced to read-only because the
first person had effectively locked the file.

So check the permissions on the folder and make sure that users are
able to create the .ldb file if they are the first one in.
