I have a problem with a locking issue with an Access database. The BE is hosted in the cloud on SQL Server and each user is using their own version of the FE.

The problem is that when one user lists the data from a table (tbl_purchase_order) in a list form, when another user tries to add a record to this table, they get timed out.

Any ideas on what I could do to get round this problem? It only seems to happen on this table, but this is a very busy table.
