Default Can I Make Changes to a DB After Splitting It

We have a DB being used/shared by 3 people. We often get the "You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time" message and I believe that the solution is to Split the DB.

Can I continue to make changes, updates, etc. to forms and tables after I split the DB? Are there any restrictions to what I can do after setting up Front End and Back End versions of the DB?

Thank you for your help!

Splitting is really the Best Practices method to continue any development.

I actually start EVERY Access application split. It makes development much easier.

Here are my thoughts and TIPS on the subject:

Splitting your Access database into application and data
