Try:
Tools | Options | Advanced | Record-level locking.

I have already tried that. But it is still locking the table. I found
in few articles that for a single record to get locked, the record
needs to be around 2kb size. Thats why I am looking for any tools to
achieve record locking in Access.

Did you also set the option immediately above for:
No Locks

Why do you believe it is locking the entire table?

I have set the option "No locks".
I tried to change a record in a table from one system and tried to edit
another record from the same table from some other system. It throwed
an error "reocrod locked".

Was the database opened Shared or Exclusive?

Was this in a table, or in a form?

If a form, what open the properties of the form, and look at the Data tab:
what is the Record Locks setting? What about Record Type? Is there any code
in the form's module that could be dirtying the record, e.g. in the form's
Current, Timer, Open or Load events?

Was the database split (as recommended for multi-user), so each user has a
local copy of the front end?

Does the locking problem occur only in consecutive records, or also in
records that are hundreds of records away from each other?

Is there any other code running at the same time?

What version of Access, and what version of JET?

ACCESS 97, Pessimistic Record Locking!??? Does Access 97 allow record level Pessimistic locking? In other words, when user A is editing a record (has it locked) and User B tries to edit it (attempts to lock it), user B will get an error saying this record cannot be locked now. It seems like Access 97 is doing optimistic record level locking. In above scenario user B, is allowed to edit the record but when tries to

Hello, I'm using A2K and am trying to make sure that my program only locks one record at a time and I don't seem to have any luck getting that to happen.

I have been ok with optimistic locking most of the time but I have a situation now where there is more of a chance that users could try to edit a record at the same time. I'd like to use pessimitic locking, but it's not working quite as I expected. I've read all over, and by now have posted elsewhere on this subject, and (strangely it would seem) have made no progress. This seems to be a bit of a blank spot on the map. (Access 2000-2003,...

I'm having problem with using DAO recordset to append record into a table and subsequent code to update other tables in a transaction. The MDB is Access 2000 with the latest service pack of JET 4. The system is client/server, multiusers based. The MDBs are using record locking. Here is part of the code: Dim wkSpace As Workspace, db As Database Dim rstTrans As DAO.Recordset Set wkSpace = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)

Actually, it is not only the record locking, what I need, and nobody seems to descibe this. Imagine the following scenario. There is a database with, say 10000 records with some unvalidated data. And there is an Intranet ASP.NET application which is an interface to the database in question... and there are 100 pretty girls eager to... uhmm... use the application and validate the data of course ;-). The task is to enable the data...

Using Access 2003 and using a form that's mostly bound. I need a way to tell if user-1 is on the record when user-2 tries to open the same record, w/o waiting for the user-1 to save the record first. The only way I can think of is by adding a flag to the record and setting it to true when user-1 opens the record. If user-2 tries to open it, the flag is checked for true, then a message would be displayed to them that user-1 is on the...
