hi, sorry the bad english...
i hava a database(MS ACCESS) in a server with OS windows nt, i want to connect to this db (by a client machine), but when i try to connect the error messsage comes: """The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.""" I think it can be because of the groups i have in two domains, example: i use 2 domains ABC and DEF, i read a lot of discussion about this, but i didn�t find the correct answer...tks a lot.

to possibilities that come to mind
1. Make sure you don't have the database open using the MSAccess program.
2. Make sure that you are using the correct username and password ( if needed ) to query the database.
can't think of any other reasons why it would throw this exception
I agree. Here's the link:
