APFW copied database shows users logged in when trying to edit fields

I made a copy of the database so I could experiment with adding new fields and importing data before doing it to our live database. 

 

I have NOT shared the copy.

 

But when I try to edit fields in the copy, it shows users logged in.  I assume this is because they were logged in when I copied the DB?

 

If I lock the COPY (which is not shared and should not have anyone logged in) will it kick those users out of the primary database?

Ok I guess it copies their logged in status because apparently the login has timed out and I can now edit fields.

Not enough info to make correct recommendations -

Please read before posting http://community.act.com/t5/Act/PLEASE-READ-THIS-BEFORE-YOU-MAKE-A-NEW-POST/td-p/233496

what version of act? help / about  - what os ? etc..

How did you make copy of act db?  act / file / save copy / save as ? ....( recommended method ).

Did you manully copy paste some file/folder items? and did you stop act7 sql service before attempting that?

Close act - then try to stop start your act7 sql server service ( start / run / services.msc )

Always Backup your ACT! databases and Personal files daily and before making changes to db...ACT / File / Backup / etc...

Hope that helps - cheers - FSB Smiley Happy
