SharePoint 2007 Custom List Save Conflict on Update

Posted on 2011-10-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a custom sharepoint list that we have several people in and out of all day long and we need to find a way to manage changes better.  We seem to be getting a lot of "Save Conflict" errors when we click "OK"  to submit changes in an update screen.

Are there any tricks to the trade to better manage multi update situations, record locking?

I have read about somethings you might be able to put in the custom update aspx that would do auto retries?

    OOB, there aren't much. Honestly when updating a specific list item, usually the update takes place pretty quickly. How many users do you have updating a specific list item all at the same time?

    sorry, the holidays has been keeping me quite busy.What you are getting is a built-in record locking feature that comes with SharePoint list items. This not only prevents access to that one item, but it also prevents unauthorized users from actually seeing data in the list.  Even when you query the object model and retrieve items (rows) from a list, your results have unauthorized records trimmed out automatically.
