The data has been changed error message

P: 1
I noticed that the "The data has been changed. Another user edited this record and saved the changes before you attempted to save your changes. Re-edit the record" message has been dealt with in this forum. I am updating a file when a command button on Form A is clicked, and then displaying Form B. When a field on Form B is changed, I am receiving the above message. I am updating using SQL statements rather than a recordset. What should I do so that this message doesn't occur?
Thank you in advance for your advice and help,

Try changing your Locking Strategy, perhaps:
  1. Open Databases using record-level locking.
  2. Lock Edited Record (Pessimistic Locking).
  3. Both of thes Options can be found under:
    Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
    1. Tools ==> Options ==> Advanced
