    LogIn Screen

    Hi everybody,

    I am using my access database with linked Excel Sheets as table. Therefore just one person at a time can use the database, as otherwise an error occurs telling the second person using the database that the excel sheets are already used. But this is not really a problem. The only thing I would like to have is a logIn screen which tells you who is currently using the database.

    I know how to create a LogIn screen but I have no idea how to create a message saying something like "Login not possible, User XYZ is currently using the database!"
    If somebody already did something like this I would be more than happy about some help.

    AFAIK, you cannot edit a linked Excel file, regardless of one user or three users accessing the file. So, I do not understand the functionality you have with one user that you do not have with two users.

    If you import the excel tables into the db, then you wont have this problem. many people can then use the db.
