How to solve MaxLocksPerFile problem without changing registry settings?

P: n/a
Hi all!

My code is causing a violation against the MaxLocksPerFile in the
I checked Microsoft Knowledge Base;EN-US;815281.
It suggests increasing MaxLocksPerFile setting in registry by using

DAO.DBEngine.SetOption dbmaxlocksperfile, 1500

or manually.

So far I discovered already that the problem is caused by the following

dim dbs as database
dim rst as recordset
set dbs = currentdb
set rst = dbs.openrecordset ("A NORMAL SELECT-QUERY")

do until rst.EOF

I don't mind to use SetOption method.
However, I don't understand what does the above mentioned code locks.
In other words, what code should I use in order not to lock anything?

=> apparently the records remain locked after the edit-statement. I
didn't have this problem when using Access 97. It seems that Access2002
has much more features for client-server structures but I'll have to
learn how to use them. Therefore I would like to know as what type and
what options I have to give to my recordset in order to achieve that
each record is un-locked directly after the rst.UPDATE statement. In
the help-files I didn't find an answer that solved my problem...

I posted this question one month ago, but I did not get an answer.

Any help appreciated.
