ms jet database issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • The program that I'm using uses, in the same folder, an Access database. When I try to ope the program I get the following EM: "The MS jet database engine cannot open the file.... It is already opened exclusevily by another user or you need permission to view its data." I am the sole user and the program isn't open. I'm using Windows 7 and this program worked in Vista. I have also reinstalled the program.
    What can I do?

  • Sounds like a permissions problem. Where is the application installed? You may want to put the Access database in the users data folder where they would have full permissions to the file.
