I have a chat room that runs off of an Access 2000 database. I have two pages, a DispChat.asp page that displays the messages that are being posted in the room. I also have a sendChat.asp page that does the Insert of messages into the database. <BR><BR>Now its time for the visualization...<BR>Imagine now, that you have two frames. <BR>One of the frames contains the the DispChat.asp page to display the messages. The other frame contains a form that you can use to insert a message. I have a meta refresh on the dispchat.asp page so that the page displays somewhat current messages (refreshes every 10 seconds). After someone enters a few messages I sometimes get a "Could not use ''; file already in use." error in the dispchat.asp frame. I have already visited the Microsoft site and performed what they call their solution (which was giving full control to the IUsr user of the database file and the DispChat and SendChat files). This didn't help. Does anyone else have any suggestions?
