Write conflict error w/ linked tables

P: n/a


I have a ms access table table which is linked to a mysql database table. I
have used a ms access form
to edit records. However, when I attempt to edit a record I get a write
conflict error in ms access. I am using MS ACCESS 2002. The error is 'the
record has been changed by another user since you started editi it.
If you save the record, you will overwrite the changes the other user made'.
The Save record button
is greyed out so I can't select that.

I am the only user on editing this record. I would really appreciate some
guidence on how I can go about editing the records.
The mysql database table has the design and field types below.
Thanks so much,
