Unable to copy objects between my projects.

  • Follow

When developing new projects, I have found it useful and time saving to copy 
forms, reports etc. from one of my completed projects to the new one and 
as needed. I ran into a problem yesterday when copying a form. This is the  
error message I received: "The database has been placed in a state by user 
<name> on machine <name> that prevents it from being opened or locked. (Error 
3734)." (the username and machine are mine, of course)

The error message help button gave this information: "This error occurs when 
the new passive shutdown/connection control is being used. This error message 
indicates that a user set the database in a mode that will prevent other 
users from opening it."

My question is how do I reset this "control" so that I am able to copy 
objects between projects, saving development time. Thanks in advance for your 
help.  - Ron

I noticed that nobody answered.  You sort of have two different questions at 
once there, with one of them (how you are trying to copy) not fully 

To troubleshot, try making sure that nobody else has either db open. 

You might try using the "get external data" menu choice.   It's a nicer way 
to copy stuf in anyway.
