could not update; currently locked by another session on this machine

Working in Access 2000:

I have found several posts for this error message in various forums
across the internet, but no answers. Can anyone explain why this
happens?

It only seems to occur when the record contains a memo field with >
2000 characters in it.

I have tried repairing, compacting, rebuilding, and copying by
datasets too and from other databases. Nothing seems to work.

Even if someone told me this was a known, unfixed,
you-have-to-live-with-it, bug I would be happy.

Thanks.

I am trying to update a memo field in a table from a form that I have created. The form is unbound, and once the user makes their changes, they have to click the continue button. Once the button is click then, there is some VB code that uses SQL Update to take the information on the form and update the table with the new changes. However, I am having issues with the Memo fields. I have looked at several different posts and have not been...

I have found a number of things: 1. it happens only with long memo fields, starting somewhere above 255 characters (though I don't know exactly where.

Hi All, I'm having a problem with the following code. I've read quite a lot of old posts regarding the issue but none seem to affer a solution. The scenario is. I have a bound form which contains a couple of memo fields. I need to keep some sort of log as to when each update of the memo field occurs so I have locked bot the memo fields on the main form. To edit them, the user double clicks the ememo field which then opens an unbound...

Hello, Everyone... My name is Chris Wogksch. I have a point of sale application developed in VB6 using MS Access 2003 as the database.

I have 2 users who ran into a problem with a data entry program (written in Access 2003). One user was keying into one of the forms when she got the message "ACCESS Error Number: 3218 Could not update; currently locked'. About the same time, another user was keying records into a 2nd form. Even though they were on different forms, they would have added records to the same table. The 2nd user had tried to add about 28 records, the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
