    The process cannot access the file [filename] because it is being used by another process

    Donna Gregory

      From a button inside Access 2013, I am calling a batch file which calls a Monarch project.  The output from this project updates a table inside the Access database.   If I run the batch file from within the database I get this error "The process cannot access the file [filename] because it is being used by another process" in the log file.   If I run the batch file outside the database, it runs fine. The Access DB client settings is set to "Shared".  

      Is there anyway of getting around this?    This scenario works fine in an older versions of Access and Monarch.
