Can't open access database file on multiple computers

By tommy.verticalheart ·
Hi, I have an Access database and 3 computers networked together that need to access it simultaneously for a sale we do annually. No matter which one of the 3 PC's I have the database file "hosted" on, I cannot get the file open on all 3 machines unless I simultaneously open it on computer 1 & 2 (i.e. Double click on the file at the exact same time).

I can open it on computer 1 & 3, no problem, then computer 2 can't open it. I can open it on computer 2 & 3, then computer 1 can't open it. Seems like the only way to have all 3 accessing it is to open it on computer 3...then double click the file on computer 1 & 2 at the same time....I hope this makes sense. I don't recall this ever happening before.

Any help please?
