Fellow Devs,<BR><BR>I'm writing an ASP.NET web application that makes use of data stored in Access tables. The system has several users logged on at once and at certain times a user cannot load a page because the data is being accessed by another. I have the connection set up in 'Shared' mode, I believe. Any pointers on how you insure that the connection will 'wait' for the db to unlock? Or is this the wrong way to go about it? Thanks.
