    Hi Laura,

    Generally, we want to put the front-end (FE) database on the local hard
    drive, not on a networked drive. Does the situation improve if you copy the
    FE to your local hard drive?

    Are your forms based on the linked tables directly, or on queries? If based
    on a queries, do the queries result in an editable recordset? I don't know if
    this will help, but I would try deleting all table links, then do a compact
    and repair of the database (hold down the shift key to prevent any startup
    forms from opening), and then use File > Get External Data > Linked tables to
    re-establish the table links. Does this help the situation?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
