Hi Experts,

We have an ADP Project (A2003) connected to SQL Server 2005.

We have a form bound to a large SQL table that is often is use by more then use user for updating a particular record at the same time, and currently users are getting a write conflict error message and changes are being discarded.

Now my question is, if I dont want to split those fields in question between multiple tables, and I dont want to force a save record after each field update, what are my other options?

PS, The table in question has a timestamp field already.
