Database will not open



We are trying to open a database created by a former
employee but are getting and error 'The Microsoft jet
database engine stopped the process because you and
another user are trying to change the same data at the
same time'. The file is stored locally and is not open
anywhere else. Compact and Repair gives me the same reply.
Is there any way of retrieving this file?

Access stores the locking information in a small file with an ldb extension
in the same folder as the database. It generally deletes this file on exit,
but you may need to delete the file manually after a crash. If you can't
delete the ldb file, reboot the machine.
