MS Access DAO multi-user updating problem

P: 1
Hi all,

I have an application developed in MS Access and using DAO and running in multi-user environment. It is not a Web application, just the users are sharing data source. My problem is when more than one users are working on same record they are overwriting each other, in another word if a record has been deleted or updated by other users since the user retrieved the record and the user without realizing the changes and update the record again!

Could anyone give me a clue how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

You have to look for the options about record locking. Under Tools, go to Options and the Advanced Tab. Set your default to lock the edited record. You also have this as a property option on forms.
