    ldb file = 0 kb? (WIN2000-ACC97)

    Here's a new one (to me anyway).
    I tried to open MyDatabase - I have full network & database permissions - and received the dreaded "....already in use .." message.
    Naturally I was the only person here at the time.
    So the first thing I did, was to delete the stray ldb file. What I noticed, was that all of the ldb files are 1 kb, the one I deleted was 0 kb.
    I then tried to open the db again, same message.
    No ldb file created at all.
    I tried importing everything into a new db, same message.

    Using the Jet utility, it says there is no one in the db.

    I cannot open this db or import.

    Is there a KB article that I missed or a trick I should know about?

    TIA as always,

    Michael

    Have you tried renaming this database and/or moving it to a different location, then trying to open it? Also, try renameing the .ldb to something like .ldb_bad, forcing the creation of a new .ldb in a new place on the disk.

    As is typical with Access, I am now able to open the db. My gut feeling is it has to do with the network somehow.
    I didn't think to rename or move the actual db, but will try it if (when !!) this happens again.
    I will keep a note of this thread and continue it after I have tried your suggestions.

    Thanks for your help Mark.
