The forms we are using to add and edit funds for clients are bound forms so any changes that have been made are being automatically saved without prompting the user and this could lead to the data held in the tables being changed by accident.

Anyway of stopping this?

The way I do it is to have two copies of the form, one set to disallow everything, but with a button labelled "Edit" which opens the second identical form which has add/ edit / delete allowed.
