Access write conflict

Hi Experts.

I have an Access app wich have a huge form, separated in different tabs, many of who have inside subforms that bring data related from several tables.

Users often have to copy data from several fields in different tables in a record to another record. To lighten this manual process, I've added a button that automates the copy of that data from one record to another using SQL queries.

Well... here comes the problem. After executing the code of the button, the next time that the user changes to another page of the tab, or when he tries to close the form (I launch saving record code on both events) he receive an alert message with a write conflict, offering them to save the data, copy to clipboard or don't save.

It's irrelevant the button that users select, as data is correctly saved into the current record. It only seems to detect the conflict (probably between the save made from the queries and the following save made when switching tabs) and throws the annoying alert window.

I've googled a bit looking for a solution to this, I've also tried to force a  "DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord" just after finishing button's proccess and tried to silence the warning through DoCmd.SetWarnings False to no success.

Any ideas? I'm seeking how to correct the conflict, but as data is being correctly recorded, I'll be happy enough if the alert is silenced.

Hi,

If you are running an append query or code behind the button can you please post the code?

I supect what is happening is that the datya in the database and the data on the screen are out of sync.

Rather than trying to save the form data you should refresh it to get the revised data from the table.

replace
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
with
me.refresh

That should do it - but post your code anyway.

Regards,

Bill

I've found the solution myself.

In the whole button's proccess I was setting values directly in one of the subforms, launching a saverecord, and after that saving them again through a query (O_o¿) after commenting the query the alert dissapears and data still is correctly saved.

Thanks anyway.

Solution was related to a code error that I've finally found by myself
