Hi All. I'm doing a maintenance in a program full developed with MS Access 97 (database + forms). Recently, the customers have upgraded his Office version to XP. After it, they are getting problems on update their data (MSAccess forms). The problems are about record locking, saying something like "The record is locked by another user in this session". Reiterating, this issue didn't happens when computer had office 97. I disconnected all the accesses to the database to see if there are others users locking the record, but It occurs when are only one user on the db. So, what I'm needing is: - there are some manner to disable the default MSAccess behaviour, changing from pessimistic locking to optimistic locking, so the problem will not show anymore? - or someone know any other way so I can resolve it? PS.: the customer will change this MSAccess software to a .NET+SQL software in a few months, so the solution can be palliative.
