Access Database Couldnt Use (database.mdb): file already in use

This is caused by a file permissions setting. The user group that is accessing the page doesn't have sufficient permissions to lock the database.

ASP uses the everyone/anonymous group which is also the the IUSR group on the web server.

To fix this setting, give the EVERYONE user group in the WebControlCenter write and delete permissions on the folder that contains the Access database file (the .mdb file).
