I have about 14 concurrent user using an access form on their desktop. They keep locking each other out of the database. The database is split with the frontend ( forms, queries, reports and some tables used to feed dropdown lists) on the PC. The data tables reside on the network. I form is currently bound to the backend tables. I would like to make the form unbound with a submissions that would insert the form record info the a text file, then link the text file to the backend. This should eliminate the concurrent user conflicts. The form only has 4 elements so I think that is the best solution.
