Disallow Editing Data
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   16 months ago

Prevent Users from Editing or Deleting Existing Records

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access Tutorial TechHelp video, I'll show you how to set up your form so that users can ADD new records, but they can't EDIT or DELETE existing data. We will learn how to use the Allow Edits and Allow Deletions properties. I'll also show you how to set up a quick and simple Admin form so YOU can make changes, but your regular users can't.

Hema asks, "Hi. Can you help me? How do you disable data editing after inputting values in a form? I tried locking but it is not allowing me to enter new data as well."


I'll show you how to set up a Main Menu form and set it as the Startup Form for the database. Learn how to disable the Navigation Pane, most of the Ribbon, and the Shortcut Menus so your users can't go poking thru your database. Learn how to ask for a PASSWORD to gain access to the Admin Menu. Plus lots more.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!
