If the users are sharing the same front end (or if they are sharing the same database if it is not split,  then that is your problem.

If each user has their own front end, then check the allow additions property.

A multiuser Access database should be split to a front end (the part with the forms, reports, pages and most of the code and queries) and a back end (the part with the tables). Tools, database utilities, database splitter will automatically split the database. Then each user should be running from their own copy of the front end. The problem you describe is a common problem when several users share the same copy of the front end.

On the form's data tab is "Allow Additions" set to Yes?
