I was trying to change the call code in the "ON LOAD" event line for Access 2010 and did something that now will not let me do anything relative the module. I get the message "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later". I am the only person using this computer/software. I simply want to delete the module so that I can move on, but after receiving that message it kicks me off Access 2010. Can anyone help?

thanks




Explanation of Issue:
-----------------------
We have 5 users using one ACCESS Databas and the application is in same package of database, I mean there is a file .accdb extension and this file holds application and ACCESS database both.

This file resides on Network Drive and all users have short cut link to access it. There was no issue or errors when users had there client laptop with Windows XP.

After there client is upgraded to Windows 7, they start getting the error message as:

"You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later."

Can any one help me, why was it working before and how come it start giving this irritative message.

Also the message appears atleast for 20 times...

Thanks

I've researched this (and apologise if it's a stupid question ), but it seems that this error message:

"You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time"

should only appear if I have multiple users trying to change it. This is just a school assignment, and no one else uses my computer. This is Access 2010.

Would just copying and pasting the file to a different location on my computer work?




"You Do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes you may not be able to save them later"

I have a Access 2003 database which I am trying to make some changes in. I am the only person with access to the database, but I still receive this message.

I have also tried opening the database "exclusively" by opening access, then choosing the open option, browing to my db, and before clicking the OPEN button i chose on the drop-down menu to open it "Eclusively". I still received the same message.

Any idea on what could be the cause of this?




Hello. I have a database built for supervisors to enter employee journal entries. This is done on a form and then the data is saved to a table. I have split the database into a front and back end, and have applied user-level security to the database. The problem that i am having is when any of our supervisors attempts to add an entry via the form, the get an error stating: "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later." Does anyone know why this is happening? It only happens when a supervisor logs in, when I (Admin) log in and attempt to add a record, i do not get the error. Please help!!




Just experienced something very annoying which I've never seen before!

Edited a form because it wasn't functioning correctly but it won't let me save it because it says "You do not have exclusive access to the database. Your design changes cannot be saved this time. Do you want to close without saving your changed" - well of course I don't I've just spent ages changing it and fixing it up!

What can I do?




I am getting the message "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time" whenever I try to make changes to my forms.

This problem only happens after I run the following statements and I get the message "Cannot access C:SALON-NETDataSalon-Net_be.mdb; file already in use"

Dim wrkJet As Workspace
Dim db As Database

Set wrkJet = CreateWorkspace("NewWorkSpace", "admin", "", dbUseJet)
Set db = wrkJet.OpenDatabase("C:SALON-NETDataSalon-Net_be.mdb", True, False, "MS Access;PWD=test01")


Although I have 3 PC's on the network, the database is not shared, and the folders are not shared, and no one else is accessing the database.

If I bypass the statements above then I do not have a problem at all, but I need to run those statements as they are at the start of the main form and they do any updates to the backend database that are requried such as adding fields ect. This is just version control so that if I install the application on another PC it does the same updates to the backend database on that PC also if you see what I mean.

I haven't always had this problem.

I have looked for answers on this forum and the internet for weeks now and still cannot get it sorted out.

I tried unistalling Adobe Accrobat which I have seen suggested (Could something still be hanging around) although another PC has the same problem and that has never had Adobe Acrobat installed on it..!

I have also tried following the advise on the Microsoft site. Renaming the files/moving it to another folder ect

Any ideas?




I am running Access 2010. The datablase is split with front end running on my machine and the back end on the server. I have 4 other users using Access Runtime. My settings are set to "Shared" with "No Locks". The users on runtime can use the database with no warnings however if they have the database open and then I open it I get the warning "you do not have exclusive access....." It may have something to do with the fact that today I was making some changes and someone popped it open on me through the runtime. Anyone have any ideas on this. Thanks in advance. Please go easy on the code talk because I don't understand it.




Advice and direction required …

My User Account is part of the Admins Group. This Admins Group has Open/Run, Open Exclusive and Administer permissions to the Database and Administer privileges to all Object Types

Every so often, I need to tweak, update or develop the underlying Database objects. More often, other Users are accessing the Database and the usual record-locking information file is evident.

When I go into the back-end of the Database I am met with the message, “You do not have exclusive access to the Database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later”.

Therefore, in the Database Window or in the object itself (e.g. Form), I go to ‘Tools’ -> ‘Options’ -> ‘Advanced’ and change Default open mode from ‘Shared’ to ‘Exclusive’.

If I make a change to an object etc and try to save, I get the message “You do not have exclusive access to the database. Your design changes cannot be saved at this time. Do you want to close without saving your changes?”.

Without advising Users to exit the Database or deleting their record-locking file, how can I update/amend the Database whilst Users are active in it?

Thanks.




I made a module that imports all the tables, data and relationships from one db into a blank mdb file so users can make ad hoc queries and reports. But this error comes up when I try to make a new report, form, etc into db that imported all the tables.

You do no have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make chages, you may not be able to save them later.

This despite the fact that I'm the only using the db. Any suggestions?

Update: right now in the form that imports the tables, there's an import button and delete button. If import the tables then close it and then reopen it, I don't get the above error. But the thing is I want the tables imported and deleted when the db is opened and closed, respectively.

Another update:

I run this code:
Dim obj As AccessObject, dbs As Object
Set dbs = Application.CurrentData
' Search for open AccessObject objects in AllTables collection.
For Each obj In dbs.AllTables
If obj.IsLoaded = False Then
' Print name of obj.
Debug.Print obj.Name
End If
Next obj

and it prints all the table names. So it looks the tables aren't "loaded" despite the fact they are imported. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I am trying to find out the best way to disable the following message that users receive when trying to access the db while other are logged in:

"You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you need to make changes, you may not be able to save them later."

There are multiple users making changes and/or viewing the database at all times so the 20+ error messages that appear with the above verbiage can be quite annoying. By the way this database is set up with a front and back end so that they may be backed up monthly.

I'd appreciate any help




OK,
I've read through many posts here looking for an answer and can't seem to find one that really addresses my particular problem. I've had experience with the exclusive access numerous times before, so am aware of the "typical" problems and fixes. This one has me stumped, though.

I have a db that is on a network drive. Workgroup security is set up on it with only the administrator (me) set to "exclusive access" under the permissions. I have a blanket read-only user logon that most of the others in my office use. I thought at first this problem only arose when others but me opened it, but it seems to come and go.

Basically, I get the "you do not have exclusive access to the database at this time, if you proceed any changes you make may not be saved" error message whenever anyone logs into the database FROM ONE PARTICULAR COMPUTER ONLY. The message appears and you can click OK, then it reappears about a dozen or so times. Finally, it lets you use the database, and can make data changes, etc. but no design changes. Another thing is this happens no matter if another user has the db open or not. There is no ldb file in the directory when the database has been closed, but it does appear as it's supposed to when it opens.

I've checked the workgroup file, and it's fine, I tried opening it from the main file and from the desktop shortcut, I also tried opening Access first then finding the file and using the "Open/Open Exclusive" drop down menu from the file browsing window, and that seems to help; if I select "Open" it opens with out the error message. If I select "Open Exclusive" it tells me I don't have permissions to open exclusively (this is using the read-only login), but proceeds to let me "open" the database without the other error message that appears a bunch of times.

One other thing, I thought it was the computer and/or that maybe the program (Access) had gotten corrupted somehow, so the IT guys replaced the computer and reinstalled Office 2000, and it's still doing it. Again, like I said, this is only happening on one computer, which has been changed out even...

I'm totally at a loss here so any thoughts on troubleshooting this or remedying this would really be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!




We have shared MDE, when second user opens gets message: [B]You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later.
The message seems to repeat for each compiled object (Form, Report and Module).
Helptext states occurs when in design mode - but not in design mode!
Any ideas as to how we can suppress the warning?




I have an odd problem with my database. I have an un-bound form set up as a menu. It has 26 buttons on it that run queries and reports. None of these queries and reports change any data or create any tables, they only pull information. When I open the form while someone else is in the database, I get the “You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time” error message 26 times, once for each button. The odd part is that no one running access 2007 gets this message, only access 2010. This happens to all of my other forms that are set us a menus as well.

I understand that if I split the database, I will not get this message anymore, but that is just not an option for this database’s purpose.




Since I started using Access 2010, I've been encountering problems with this error message popping up when multiple users try to access the same database. Sometimes they message pops up when the database is opened, other times it is when certain forms are opened. In no case are any objects being opened in design view. Some of these databases are linked to SQL tables, some are linked to Access back ends, and others are using local tables. In some cases, all three types of tables are present.

Another issue that may or may not be related is that there are System tables being added to my relationship window, but I am not adding them. They are appearing all by themselves. When I see this happen, it is always the same 3 tables: MSysNavPaneGroups, MSysNavPaneGroupsToObjects, and MSysNavPaneGroupsCategories.

I am at my wits end. Please Help.

By the way, the user usually has to hit "OK" about 10-15 times before they can proceed.




Here is the situation I'm in now:
OS: Win XP
We have 4 work stations 3 of them has Office 2000 installed, and one machine had Office XP installed(user1).

The error we are getting is "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later."

If the database is open by USER1 - everyone is getting the error above.
If the database i NOT open by USER1 - noone gets the error(user2-4 are using it wihout the error)

I thought the the error will be caused by different access versions, so I uninstalled Office XP from User1 and installed Office 2000 and now what happens is:



if user1 opens access first - others get the error "The database has been placed in a state by user “Admin” on machine" - this error poped up after i reinstalled the office.

If user2 opens access first - then user1 opens - we get the "exclusive access error" but we dont get the "state by user "admin" error.

I did a search online and found the KB for access - but it did not help.

Also, uninstalled Adobe 7.

Then we tried configuring it using workgroups - did not help.

Looks like its the issue with the machine itself - any ideas?

I was trying to fix it and looks like it just got worse..

Help would be appreciated.




Very simple yet has become an issue with my new problem!

I created the DB in 2000 version. Unsure if it had anything to do with the fact that I started creating it on laptop then created the rest on another computer. At the moment I can not update (create any Macro's reports or anything) if someone else is using the DB simultaneously. I am keep getting an error msg as follow:
" You do not have exclusive access to the Database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later."

The ONLY way I can modify the DB if everyone is out of the DB and ONLY I am in it making the changes, sort of defeats the purpose of using DB!

I have checked under Tools, Option and Advanced Tab on the menu bar - its marked Shared. The properties for the DB (when closed), I have adding all employee's names so they can have Read and Write access - but NOT the full access.

Why is DB not allowing me make any edits, while everyone is it?

Thank in advance.

I have a script in my database that accesses a table within the database but kind of opens the database anew and causes problems warning "you do not have exclusive access to the database, changes will not be saved etc". I tried to have it read the table by opening a recordset but it wasnt happy with that so as I look for other ways of having it access the table, I'm stuck with it. Is there a way in which access can be made not ot lock the database especially if I'm sure its just a single user database. I see the .ldb file created immediately you open the database thereby locking it from another procedure opening it.




I have a small dabase shared by 4 users on the network. when someone opens the db, then someone else opens it there is no problem. when user 1 has a report open and user 2 tries to update a record, user 2 gets the following error

You do not have exlcusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes you may not be able to save them later

I have split the database into 2 seperate Db's one is the tables only the other is the objects.

Please advise this is getting frustrating

Thanks




Hi
I am looking for help related to the “You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later.” message when trying to change the design. I have done a lot of reading on this forum as well as googled the subject but have not found anything regarding my specific question. I find that there’s a whole lot of information regarding workgroup security and how to set up and troubleshoot. However, my needs are a bit more simple – I think We have a database that is shared among 5-6 users during a couple months out of the year. There are no log-on id’s required and everyone just opens the file and works as needed. Everything works fine; we have no problems with users changing or doing more than they are supposed to. Therefore, I don’t want to break anything by complicating matters…it works and we’re happy with it. The only annoyance is that during these couple months, someone has to make occasional changes to the database in design mode. Of course, we need everyone else out of the database so he can have exclusive access. This entails calling and/or running around asking those people to close the file and sometimes physically checking computers left unattended with the file open. So my question is: Is there any way to find out what users or workstations have the file open? This would make it so much simpler. All the users are on a Windows Server 2003 network and the files reside on a server. Perhaps this is more of a Windows question; I couldn’t think where else to post it! If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks!
