I have an access database in which I import data from one of our customers and then our employees enter additional data to add to the data from the customer on forms. Is there a way to lock the data that is imported from our customer in the table and still allow our employees to enter new data on the forms? Just a note the forms within our database do contain continuous forms in which will contain data from the vender and also need to allow the user to enter in the fields also.

Thank you

Are you filling additional fields (empty) to imported records or you like to add new records?

add a YesNo field (Lock) to your table
for all imported records update the Lock field to True
include the Lock field to the Record source of the form

in the current event of the form set the locked property of the controls

private sub form_current()

me.text0.locked=me!lock
me.text1.locked=me!lock


end sub
