Default File Sharing Lock Exceeded

Hi folks,
I am not sure that replying to this note will re-activate interest in this Access error message, but someone may be able to point me in a suitable direction - I hope!
I have just triggered the above mentioned error message by simply selecting an existing, working, report in a database and using File, Save As/Export... to create another, similarly named, report in the same database. Using the File, Copy and Paste, triggers the same error also.
From then on even attempting to close the database, using an 'Exit' routine that 'cleans up' before exiting produces the same message. The only way out is to get to Task Manager and close Access from there.
Has anyone else had this and found a solution - I'm still looking!
