Lock Record for Editing on a Linked table

I have linked tables front end application running on network drive. The data is becoming huge and the users are becoming more, as a result the application become slower.

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:

lock a field after editing
Last year I asked the question is it possible to lock a field after editing. Lysander (thanks Lysander) gave me the following code:

Then in the After_Update event of myName put the following code

1) myAddress.setfocus
2) myName.locked=true
3) myName.enabled=false

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.


Toggle button to lock record
I would like to create a lock button on top of my form to lock and unlock editing to a specific record.

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


What views lock a table from being edited by another user?
How do I handle multi-user editing and updating of one single table? If I'm in datasheetview does that lock the table?

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.


Spurious record lock
We have Access 2007 linked to a SQL 2005 database through an ODBC link. We recently removed a couple of old unneeded fields from a table in the database, but it turned out that they were needed somewhere in another application, so we re-added the fields in SQL 2005's Enterprise Manager and refreshed the links in Access 2007's Linked Table Manager, and all our Access queriesand the other application continue to work fine except that now when we open this table in Access and attempt to modify *any* field directly, we get the standard record lock message("This record has been changed by another user since you started editing 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?


Record Locks checking by VB6
As we know, once a form's Record Locks is set to Edited Record (2), if user1 starts editing of a record, it will show the Locked Indicator state in the Record Selector when user2 edit the same record.

2 Questions
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


Lock a record
I have created a payroll using access 2007. is there an option to lock only one specific record rather than the whole table.

For example, if John is no longer an emplyee I want to lock it and never be able to unlock it again

Record lock when Checkbox (Yes/No) is Yes
I have a ECN table which contains many fields including ECNID it's related via relationships to another table containing part numbers linked to the ECN record in the ECN table.
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


Locking specific records via check box
I have 2 tables which are linked, the first table contains "Referral" info, linked to this is an "Activity" table. Both tables have separate forms. The PK on the Referral table is RefID and is obviously a FK in the Activity table. What I want to do is lock records in the Activity table if the master record in the Referral table has a check box ticked (this tick box being Discharged). I dont want user to be able to add to the activity table if this is checked in the Referral table using RefID.

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?


Lock the controls and subforms when user moves to the next record
I have a form and a subform. What I want is to lock the controls of the form and its subforms when the user moves away from the current record of the main form, so that the user is prevented from editing its historical entries.

I have tried using the "Data Entry" property of a form, but its behavior is different from what I want to achieve


UPDATE only where form value is different from table value
I am not sure if this is possible without many lines of relatively redundant if/else statements, but in my quest to be an efficient developer, I ask the masses.

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.

I am not a very experienced developer,


Editing a Linked Table
How do I edit a linked table in Access (2000). I need to add fields to my current table.


Lock records in a table based on a value of a field
In my table named "Commandes", when the field [Nom de l'état] value is "Payée" (3), I would like that record to be lock and a message that popsup saying that this record is paid, please select another order.

In the image below, you have details of the Réf Statut field that is the ID of the status in the table [État des commandes]

Sometimes when opening a form, I retrieve data that was already paid, if a user is not concentrated, then, he might change data in that record, that is the reason why I want to lock the records in the table "Commandes" that are paid.


Field lock after entering data
I have a form that I need to lock the field (text box) after I enter the data (and unlock it if I need to update the data). I don't want to lock the entire record since other data in the form is changed periodically. It would be nice if it could lock during a save function.


Lock column width in datasheet subforms
I have a couple of very simple linked subforms that I'm trying to keep as clean as possible. They're both in datasheet format.

There should be no need of resizing columns on either; but if the user plays with the forms, they can drag them out, which results in a) horizontal scroll bar, and b) potentially inconsistent column widths as the child form updates from record to record.

I've tinkered in the properties for each of the text boxes, but can't seem to lock them down.

Surely I'm missing something simple


Lock fields in a query
How is it possible please to lock certain fields in a query from editing? (if the recordset is updateable of course)

Locking a single record
Is it possible to lock a single record so that it is used as a template?

I have almost 500 records, and I just want to lock the 1st one so that when it pops up, the text isn't editable, but when another record is pulled up, the new record is editable


Locking entries
I have imported excel files into an access database and made the table for my form. I now have a form that I designed, that allows the user to query the information on the table, and I have created a tick box to allow the user to check if the file is on site or off site at our storage unit. How can I set the form, to "lock" all aspects of the data, except the tickbox? I.E. I don't want the user to be able to edit any of the information, only have the option to check the tick box, and once the tick box is checked, completely lock the record and allow no further editing.

Also, when searching the database is it possible to search on two fields at the same time, or can you only search one field at a time


Access: Locked Table for Editing
I have a table which is linked to a form which has been working fine for over a year now but yesterday the table "locked" for editing. I can now only copy data from the table. Theediting functions delete, cut, we can still filter the data.

If we enter data on the form it creates a new line on the table but we cannot edit directly from the table.
