    Default Remote/Shared DSN is it possible?

    I have a mapped drive which points to database using DSN and when I try to read it I get the following - If I copy the file locally it works fine. Is it possible to have a remote and local DSN pointing to the same database?<BR><BR>Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)<BR>[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file &#039(unknown)&#039. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.<BR><BR>Can anyone offer a solution

    See that the database is not opened exclusively (viz. the .mdb file opened in design mode)by another user (or the same user incase it resides in the same m/c). Good Luck !!
