I have been told using JET to access an access database is much faster than using the access driver(ODBC) (DSN) I did some testing and it is indeed faster. So question is why is it faster. The geek in me wants to know why ;-) The other question is I am getting a file in use error. The access database I am trying to access via JET is always being updated etc. I have no problem with ODBC, is there any way to allow JET to share the database so I don&#039;t get this nasty error?<BR><BR>thanks<BR>Ken
