In the advances properties tab in Data Link Properties window for MS Access adp file I can’t check the  “Share Deny Write”  check box. Why and how can I have it works?
I want to check this box because I want the users to be able to lock and edit record one by one. Is the way to do it?
Thanks in advance

When you say "I want the users to be able to lock and edit record one by one" - do you mean the records this ADP application is working with, or some other data that you have linked to this ADP? how exactly do you invoke Data Link properties window?

No, the default lock in Access is optimistic. I want to have an exclusive lock on data when a user edit a record in a table.I have 20 users accessing my database. It's on SQL Server 2000 and all the data is in one database. In Access 2007 I click Office button, then server, then connexion and advance tab.

Thanks in advance

There's no way to do that using Access data access. Access provider is using client-based cursor, hence no server-side lock. No true transactions either.

If you want to have full control on the locking, you have to code using pure ADO. You can do it in Access as well, though in this case you throw away all Access data manipulation, and program everything by yourself.

That said, are you sure you really want server-side lock? User A opens a record, then the phone rings, then she leaves for lunch. The record (at least) stays locked. User B tries to open it, and his Access freezes waiting for the lock. Guess what will user B do after 15 seconds' wait.

From my experience, server-side locks are only acceptable when performed by reliable backoffice applications, and for a short time. Take a look at my article http://www.experts-exchange.com/A_3514-Resolving-blocking-conflicts-in-SQL-Server-in-user-friendly-manner.html , maybe you'll find it useful.

Thanks a lot, that answer all my questions. For this application, I don't want to write all  code to data access.
