access 2007 don't save record, saying it's locked

Hi,

My client says that when entering text on a text box she gets an error message:

"Update failed, the is locked by another process in this computer"

it happens only in one text box but on another one it works fine
I don't see any difference between the 2

any idea?

Is there code behind the form on which the text boxes reside and/or event code such as an OnChange/IsDirty event on the Text box/record being displayed on the form?

Does the error message occur when the contents of the text box are changed or is it after the contents have been changed and then a button is pressed or you move to another record?

Is someone else trying to edit the same record as your client (could they be locking out the client who is receiving the error)?  If so, then the record locking when opening datasets in the code may need to be examined - is the data being locked optimistically or pessimistically? Or does someone have full access to the database and is sitting in Table View, editing the tables directly whilst your client is trying to update the record via a form?

I don't recognise the error message you mention as a Microsoft error message, I can only presume that it is a custom message that is being displayed as the result of some code that is being fired by the database your client is using.

It's difficult to diagnose as there is not a lot of detail in your question, hence the 1000 questions!!  Can you provide any more information?
