Is the software shared access

by Deadly Ernest In reply to microsoft access

The only times I have seen this error message have been on a system that was set up for shared access and the person was either:

a. In view/read only access mode or

b. Someone lese was actually making an entry to that specific table at that time and thus the system could not get access until the other person had finished.

In either case the database should return to the point just prior to the 'update' request. If the system is closing down it is likely to be an error in the 'actions scripting for the button on that message' thus requiring the administrator to check the program code.
