I've created a form that allows people to look up user accounts based on first and last name. The data is pulled from ADUC, stored in a SQL table. This includes User ID, Full Name, Acct Description, Creation Date and Last Login.

Table data is pullled in a Gridview that is sortable on each column, allows deletion of individual rows, and even exports data a spread sheet if necessary. I was nearly done, or thought I was when someone asked: What happens if more than one person is in the table at a time? DOH!!! Obviously the answer is that there would be issues. Ultimately only about 10 people would need to use the page, but they wouldn't necessarily be in the same location. So there is a possibility of overlap.

It was suggested that I use an array rather than a gridview. Sounds great, but that would mean starting the whole thing over from scratch. My question: Is there some way to handle this with my existing setup? Like creating a timeout on the page, and not allowing anyone access to the page while someone else is in it? Or do you have a better solution? Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!
