Lock Controls

Hi
I am trying to lock fields based on a selection from a drop down box.  I created a table, where I tagged the fields I want locked based on the selection. The code locks the fields, it just won't unlock the fields.

This portion does not work.  Is this the wrong syntax?
If mycheck3 Like "" Then
   Me.AllowEdits = True

Any thoughts are appreciated.  Thanks
Dim mycheck3, MyDB1 As Database, MYDBR1 As Recordset
Set MyDB1 = CurrentDb
Set MyDB1 = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).Databases(0)
Set MYDBR1 = MyDB1.OpenRecordset("test_field_locks", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)
    mycheck3 = MYDBR1("Adj_Lock").Value
        If Me.Status = "Submitted" Then
            If mycheck3 Like "LS" Then
                Me.AllowEdits = False
            If mycheck3 Like "" Then
                Me.AllowEdits = True
                Me.Refresh
                
            End If
         End If
    End If
MYDBR1.Close
MyDB1.Close

No that did not work. It seems like it once its locked it will not unlock.

The information is business sensitive so I can't send you the file.

I've been calling the code in the after update.  I will try the "open event".
