Env.: SQL2000, Win2000 App.: Access2000 I had a situation some days ago in the morning that all clients' applications were waiting for a locked process. It seemed a client had turned off his computer without exiting his application last night and therefor the resource left locked. 1. Is my conclusion correct? 2. Do you recommend that I kill a process which is left for a specific time? If yes, is it possible to automate this?
