Avoiding Write Conflict message...

I have a drop-box on a main form. There is a subform on the main form.

After update of the drop-box on the main form, the following code update the recordsour-table of the subform:

    
    CurrentDb.Execute "Update tOwnerDRF_Titles Set BU_ID=" & Me!cboBusinessUnit & " Where OwnerDRF_ID=" & Me!OwnerDRFID
    
    'Me!sfDRF_TitlesTempUpload.Form.Dirty = False
    'Me!sfDRF_TitlesTempUpload.Form.RecordSource = Me!sfDRF_TitlesTempUpload.Form.RecordSource

Open in new window


However, When I go from one record on the main form, I get "Write Conflict" message which I am trying to avoid. Additional information is provided on the attached image.

Question: How can I get rid of the "Write Conflict" message?

Thank you.

You can't really avoid the WC message. However, you can trap those error codes - and that error is only rendered in the Form Error event.  There, you can display any message you want to the user.  However, the standard WC message is already pretty good ... and generic Microsoft error messages go.

** Example **

Private Sub Form_Error(DataErr As Integer, Response As Integer)
    Response = acDataErrContinue
    Select Case DataErr
       
        Case 3197, 7787, 7878  'Write conflict error numbers
            MsgBox "It appears that another user is trying to Submit the exact same queue record (same AcctID) at the same time you are, which has resulted in a 'Write Conflict' situation." & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
                         "Consequently, please take the following action:" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
                         "1) Write down this queue AcctID (" & lAcctID & "), close the Disposition window, then Queues>>Load My Group Queues (or All Queues if necessary), locate the AcctID and see what changes have been made. However, if the queue was Completed by someone else, you will not be able to locate the queue." & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
                         "2) Please take a screen shot of this message and email it to the Database Administrator." & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
                         "Please note this is not really an error, however we need to track the frequency of occurrence of write conflicts, hence the need for the screen shot." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                         "Write Conflict Information --------------------" & Chr(13) & _
                         "Err Number: " & Err.Number & Chr(13) & _
                         "Description: " & Err.Description & vbCrLf & _
                         "Code Fx: " & sFx & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                         "Line Number: " & Erl, 48, "Queue Disposition - Submit - Possible Write Conflict"

        Case Else
            MsgBox "An unexpected error occurred " & DataErr & "  " & AccessError(DataErr)
    End Select
End Sub

Are the master/child links set on the subform?

If all the combobox on the main form does is filter the records in the subform, then you can even use the simple code the wizard creates:

    ' Find the record that matches the control.
    Dim rs As Object
    Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
    rs.FindFirst "[CustID] = " & Str(Nz(Me![cboCustID], 0))
    If Not rs.EOF Then Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
