Access Form Allows Editing with AllowEdits set to False
Posted on 1998-09-02
I am having what appears to be mysterious, and inconsistent behavior in one form in a database that has several other forms that are not exhibiting the same behavior.
The problem is related to the AllowEdits property of the form. It is set to No, and I also set Me.AllowEdits = False within code behind the form. All the other forms within the application use the same logic and do not allow editing. Yet the problem form allows edits at anytime, even when started directly from the database/forms window. As a further clue, this problem form also allows records to be deleted with no warning dialog - all other forms and tables respond with the verify delete dialog.
