Database Error 3050

Hi, I’m totally new to Microsoft Office and trying to find some advice.  How do I deal with the MS Access 2016 database error message, Cannot open Access database. Error 3050. It shows up for one database file but not others. Why does the program give me this pop up every time? Thanks very much in advance for all your help

To work around this problem, you can fix Access database here. Or - On the File Server, in Windows Explorer, from the highest foilder level to the individual database files, ‘Sharing & Security-Security-Advanced-Effective Permissions’ displays Full Control for the 2 new users. On each PC, in Windows Explorer, accessing the mapped network drive, all levels also display Full Control.
