This error can occur in a multiuser environment.

Another user has changed the data you are trying to update. This error can occur when multiple users open a table or create a Recordset and use optimistic locking. Between the time you used the Edit method and the Update method, another user changed the same data.

To overwrite the other user's changes with your own, execute the Update method again.

Can you give me the step by step solution resolve this

Do you get these errors while entering data or when opening the database?

Sounds like you could have gotten some corruption in your file. There are many reasons why it could have happened but most likely you will need to try some recovery options.

First you can try creating a blank database and importing the objects into a fresh database. If that does not work, I would recommend looking at the following recovery options outlined by nico5038 in many previous posts on corruption.

1) Create a backup of the corrupt database. (Just in case of)

2) Create a new database and use File/Get external data/Import to get all objects of the damaged database.

3) Try Microsoft repair solutions:

4) Access decompile:

5) Try a recovery tool / Table rescue
