Query works-Export fails "...you and another user are attempting to change the same data..."

Can't figure this out.

I am the only user in the database. The file (RealProperty) can be
queried using a select query that includes just the fields in the
table. I get the above error, however, if I try to export the
resulting table/query in any of the following fashions:

mdb (in a new db designed to store this one table)
..xls (get the same error)
..csv (get the same error)

If it simply try to copy the results, I get the same error.

I have checked: there are no dependencies that are missing; there was
an export errors table, but the three records that had data issues
have been fixed.

The table is a linked table, but the data in the original table
exhibits the same issues, with the execption that the error I receive
when I try to export the table as a comma-delimited, first row
contains field names, quoted strings, saved as ETACRealProperty.txt
file to the same folder gives me an error:

"The MS Jet Database engine could not find the object ''. ..."

I have looked at other posts in this forum and the message always
displays an object name in the quotes. In this case, it doesn't--so
where do I look--or what is this pointing to...

Save me before the few grey hairs I have come out...

Thanks,

Try:

1. Compact & Repair the database.

2. Try doing the same thing on another Access installation and see if you
get the same error.

I tried Compact and Repair - same issue. Unfortunately, I was unable
to copy the db to another workstation (from the server) to test it.
The error was in Windows Exploere and simply statned that it was
"unable to copy"--any ideas?

Thanks,
Jeff

Do you see a file with the same name plus extension LDB in the same
directory?

If you do, delete this LDB file and try again.

It doesn't sound too good that you can't even copy the file: it means that
even the Windows Explorer thinks something wrong with the file.

1. Try posting in a Windows newsgroup and see if you can copy the file. It
may be bad sectors on your hard-disk.

2. Do you perform hard-disk clean-up and defrag regularly?

3. Do you have a good recent back-up? It is likely that you will have to
resort to the back-up ...
