Hi,
    I have created a multi user access 2007 database, which has a front end and a back end.  On a form we have some multi value combo boxes..... now if person A opens the database from the front end software on their desktop, opens the form and opens the multivalue box and makes a change (clicks the OK button in the multivalue box) - everything is fine for them....

However, if person B now comes along and opens the front end from the link on their desktop, opens the form, opens the multi value box and makes a change, clicks OK - they receive:

Could Not Update.  Currently Locked By 'xxx' on Machine 'xxx'

If Person A goes to File -> Save, and saves the record, Person B is then fine, however if person A forgets to save and leaves their frontend open, no one else can do anything...

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers
