Run-time error '3051'


Nuno Gomes


I've made an application in access that use link databases in run-time.
That links database are in a Novell network and are in DBase III format.

All links works fine except one.
If i copy the DBF to my PC or to another folder in the Novell network works
In the same folder i have 3 files linked and 2 of them works ok except 1
DBF - my problem!

The run-time error '3051': The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the
file ams.mdb. It is already opened exclusively by another user or you need
permission to view its data.

I check the permitions in the Novell and are ok...

Any ideias???...

Thank you,
Nuno Gomes
