I am using an application programmed in Access (creating schedules). Other people in the network have a kind of "emulator" to view these schedules, and I make regular updates to files.
During a consultation with a remote person, a .Mdb opens. And for me to update files, I have to erase everything (in a folder) and copy my own files. But I find myself with the message (Windows) as what the file is already open and I can not erase. FYI, I am not a network administrator.
- Environment: Windows 2000 Professional
- Mdb files created in Access 97
My expectation: Is there a way or solution for:
- Or force them to remotely delete this file?
- Either disconnect remote (but I can not know the number of PCs that opened the file) all persons who have opened the application before I upgrade?
My only solution now is to call my director (when I have to!) So that the user disconnects.
Is there not a possibility to disconnect the target directory before copying the files using net.exe?
Thank you for your possible answers.
