I have an access form and it also have 5-6 subforms. The form can be used for new record creation or also for display of existing records. Data once entered usually does not change and any inadvertent change should be controlled.
I notice that sometimes while displaying existing records I might by mistake press a key and data might get changed. It will also get saved if by mistake I press ctrl + S.
So I need to implement a procedure whereby while displaying a new record the data should remain in locked mode ( for main form as well as subforms) and only doing something (like unchecking some checkbox) will unlock cells for data entry. How it can be done ?

Specify a start-up form through options:
Specify an Autoexec macro:
Polish reports in Access so they look terrific. Take yourself to another level. Equations, Back Color, Alternate Back Color. Write easy VBA Code. Tighten space to use less pages. Launch report from a menu, considering criteria only when it is filled…
