Update Records to Linked Table

    Is it possible to update records to a linked table in Access? We link
    to tables on our SQL Server and I'd like to be able to update some
    records using an Access frontend that we already have instead of
    creating a new application in VB. When I currently try to update a
    record it says that another user has modified the record since I opened
    it but no other user has it open. It also doesn't give me the option to
    save anyway.

    Thanks!

    Try adding a Timestamp column to the table on SQL Server. This is a common
    issue when updating a SS link from Access.
