Couldn't update/currently locked MDB

P: n/a
Hello

I am running an application created with MSAccess XP .
This application is running on a server and has many users. Sometimes the
backend database (MSAccess MDB) locks up
When a user tries to update the backend, the following error message occurs:

couldn't update/currently locked

Is there a way that I can identify who is accessing the backend ?
Is there a way to identify which user is locking the backend?

Thanks
G.Gerard

Check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/176670/EN-US/

From the link on that page, download the Jetutils package, unzip, run the
LDBView.exe utility and open the backend database.
