Error in Access when opening a database on a network file share

Microsoft Office updates released around the 15th December caused a problem with some Access databases where the files were stored on a network share.

You are likely to see an error saying “file already in use” or “could not lock file”.

These problems have been fixed by a subsequent Office update but you may need to force you machine to apply these updates in order to fix the problem.
