ms/access write conflict on a single user environment

Hi -
On my app I started to get a "write conflict" error when closing an unbound form. A screenshot is below.
It tells that the record has been changed by another user.
Or, there is no other user (I think) and there is no backend/front end configuration. It is a single file.

can anyone help?

In a Form-Subform arrangement, you need to make sure that data changes in the Main Form are saved before the user makes changes to the subform data.  To do this, add VBA to the Enter event of the subform control:

DoCmd.Runcommand acCmdSaveRecord

Glad to help...
I just realized that you mentioned an unbound form.  Same principle applies (you need to coordinate how and when the data gets saved).  :-)
