Record Locking: Prevent Multiple Users Editing
Learn how to enable record-level locking to prevent two users from modifying the same customer record at the same time in Microsoft Access.
Rosa from Toledo, Ohio (a Gold Member) asks: I have a small office with about 15 employees using my database. Everything works great, however once in a while two users attempt to edit the same customer record and one of them gets an error message saying they can't save their changes. This costs us a lot of time and productivity. Is there any way to prevent that?
Members will learn how to create their own custom record locking which is more flexible, allows for clearer error messages, and will warn you before attempting to run action queries that may effect locked records.
