    The Microsoft access database engine cannot open or write to the file error

    When I tried to open my query this error occur. "The Microsoft access database engine cannot open or write to the file. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data." What is a work around to solve this problem? The file that is linked in MS Access is frequently opened by many users. How am I supposed to edit/open my query if this error will always appear?

    Has someone opened on an exclusive basis? Is this split to FE and BE?"

    I'm not sure if it is opened in an exclusive basis but the data source is shared and anyone can access it. So every time I'm working on my query, that error appears. No, it is not split to FE and BE. I'm not sure how to do it and how it works but I've read that it should be split and only the FE should be accessed by users, while I'm doing it in the BE.
