Lock Record for Editing on a Linked table
Now, It has been decided to get the necessary tables data in a local tables when application starts, update it locally and then update the original database on server finally.
Everything is done and working fine.
The problem starts here:
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
If I'm in a form view does that lock the table?
I don't want the table locked, as I want one user to be able to insert a new record at any time and still allow poweruser to edit current records.
Then in the After_Update event of myName put the following code
I have used this this morning (in a different project to the original question) and it works while I'm still in the record. However when I exit the record and re-enter it the field can be edited again.
Is there a way I can lock this field so that it can never be edited. I don't really want to lock the whole record if I can help it.
If you save the record, you will overwrite the changes the other user made.") even when no other user even has Access open.
This does not happen in other tables in Access, and did not happen in this table before we deleted and re-added the fields in SQL 2005. We can still modify fields in this table using a query - *except* the fields that we deleted and re-added, which now give the record lock message even if we attempt to modify them using a query.
We tried running the Compact and Repair function in Access, and rebooting the system, but the issue persists. How can we fix this?
What I am doing now is add a toggle button and the following code for my form :
Private Sub tglLock_Click() Me.AllowEdits = Not Me.AllowEdits Me.tglLock.Caption = IIf(Me.AllowEdits, "Lock", "Unlock") End Sub
However this is not really working well. I can still alter fields in the form. Is there a way to prevent any editing at all for that current record ie all fields are locked and non clickable
Q1: Instead of relying on the Lock.Indicator in the Rec.Selector, is there any VBA function that can return this state?
Q2: Is there some code to block other users from editing a particular same record
For example, if John is no longer an emplyee I want to lock it and never be able to unlock it again
The ECN table contains a 'Closed' checkbox (Yes/No) field.
What I want to do is lock the ECN table record and the related Part Number record(s) when the checkbox is ticked (Yes).
Can anyone let me know (a) if this is possible and (b) what I need to do
I have done something similar to this before where there was a subform and I had used AfterUpdate to lock the subform, but I dont think this is quite as straight forward.
Any ideas on links to other threads/sites with a solution?
I have a subform that I have set to open (via button) and view the currently selected record based on a separate subform. This form will be used for editing the record, so I can lock down the previous form to prevent accidental changes to data.
On the subform for editing the data, I have a button to save the record, which I am going to code to run an UPDATE to the table.
Is there an easy way to compare the value on the form fields with the value of its corresponding column in the table, and return either a boolean or integer, then use that value to UPDATE only the fields where the data has changed? I want keep this as streamlined and dynamic as possible,
There are about 20 fields that could possibly be changed, so you can probably see my hesitation to write an individual statement for each one.
I am currently exploring the use of some creative FOR statements in VBA to pass values through variables to the SQL statement, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here whilst I grind away,in case anyone had any ideas off the top of their head that I had not come up with.
