I have a form when it loads I bind the records to the fields like so:

me.recordsource = "sql statment....

Is there a way to lock that record when it loads, and not when data is change. I want to be able to lock the form so if another person tries to open the same record, they can view it but will be notified they cannot edit it. Is that possible? Whether the first person is eidting the data or not, if the data is open I need that record locked.
