I get a message when updating a record from a form

The title is: write conflict

body of message: This record has been changed by another user since you started editing it. If you save the record you will overwrite the changes.
Copying the changes to the clipboard will let you look at the values the other user entered, and then paste your changes back in if you decide to make the changes.

3 buttons: save record, copy to clipboard, drop changes.

the changes are the ones the user makes then clicks update button.

is there anyway I can prevent this message from appearing. Setting warnings to false doesn't do it.

What does your update button do? If it attempts to write/update code in the SAME record as your bound form, then you'll get this message. Post the code behind the update button and let us know if the form is bound to the same datasource.
