Hi experts,

I have two subforms that are using the same recordset as the main form.  I have them as two seperate sub forms because I do not want all the information on display at the same time.  I toggle between both sub forms with two buttons. My main form that is driving the sub forms has a list box on it and the list box is driving each record on both sub forms using the ID field in the Master and Child Links.

When I edit text within either sub form, I get the following message when I select the next record in the list box:

"The data has been changed.  Another user edited this record and saved the changes before you attempted to save your changes".  "Re-edit the record".  "OK".

When I click on OK, the record does update, but I would like the message box not to appear.  Can anyone help me?

Thank you.
