Hello,

I have an Access form where I want to lock the last record to keep people from editing it, but the other records are ok to edit.  Is that possible?

Thanks, Joel

If this is a continuous form, probably not.  You could change the Recordset to Snapshot but that would apply to all records.

If you are using a single record display then you could try something like test for the max record id and if it's the last one then lock all fields on your form.

Just an idea.

Remember that a table really does not have a "last" record.
A table can be sorted in any order, so the "last" record can change.

If you mean the most "recent" record, then you can add a "created date" field to your table and add in the current date time.
The sort a query of this table by this date field, ...then do as etsherman suggests above...
