The title is the error. I get this from an Excel sheet that has a querytable to an Access database. There are multiple other workbooks in use which write to this same database, but none keep it open for more than a second. There are effectively no security features or restrictions on the database folder. If you can access the spreadsheet, you can access the database.

Ideas?

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
