No need to mess with the Registry.

You can easily do this in code - on a 'per session' basis.

'set max locks
DAO.DBEngine.SetOption dbMaxBufferSize, 1024' or higher if necessary

'execute the append query
CurrentDb .Execute "YourAppendQueryNameHere", dbFailOnError

Not even sure why you would need to do this with only 15K records ...
