open database shared

I'm trying to create some FogBUGZ reports using Access.  Each time I open the database in Access, it effectively kills access to the db for any end users.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is there a way to open db in 'shared' mode, since the reports (theoretically) will never be writing to the tables, only to reports section of db?

Even after I close Access, users sometimes have trouble accessing until I reboot server!  Perhaps this is an IIS issue?

Try creating a new database and linking the tables through the fogbugz dsn.

File->Get External Data->Link Tables
