Could Not Lock File Error 3050

Network users with read-only access are getting this error message when
another user is in the database. Any suggestions on how to fix this
problem??
Thanks!

I suspect Access is attempting to open the database (or ldb) with write
access, and of course that is failing.

What happens if you open the database from a shortcut that uses the /ro
switch to explicitly open it read-only?

Example target for the shortcut:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE" "C:\MyFile.mdb"
/ro

(Another possibility is that the original use has the database open
exclusively.)
