Annoying Locked Record


Ive got an Access97 db with a record in one of the tables that appears
to be locked by another user even though no one is using it and the
..ldb confirms this. I need to delete this record but cant!!! Can
anyone tell me how I can do this?

Probably corrupt.

Compact database
if no joy:
backup database and repair
if still no joy:
(this is a long one)

Create new database
Import everything except that table from old database
Import that table but with no data
link that table (it'll have a 1 on the end as the name would have been
duplicated, don't worry)
create a query on that table
add all fields - not * but double click table header so all fields are
highlighted and drag them down to the grid.
put in some criteria that will filter out that 1 dodgy record.
turn the query into an append query and append to the empty table.
run query.
delete the linked table.

I'm trying to determine which user has locked a given record from VB6. I know I can use sp_lock and sp_who, and match up the data to determine which users have locked records in my database, however I haven't seen a way to match the specific user to the specific record. What am I missing here? Thanks! *David*

Having tried various permutations of Before Update and well for that matter, After Update, OnExit, OnEnter, etc. and also Locked controls, I'm still unable to obtain the intended results. There are actually two parts of what I'm trying to accomplish, but are interrelated. When one part performs as it should, then upon implementation of the other, conflicts arise and vice versa. A form (frmEvents) is used to logged various events and one...

Hi, I use MS Access to connect to and SQL Database this has been working fine until recently. Whenever I add a new record (post record 723) it does not allow me to change it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
