Can anyone help me with this, I have a access form which is used by multiple users simultaneously.

On certain users p.c's users get a message telling them that the text box they are trying to enter data into is locked. However should I try to enter data in the same place on a different pc no problems are experienced.

Is there any reason for this or any solution.

I can supply further information if needed.

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.

At first glance, I'd have said that any locks are probably table/record locks and it's the recordsource you'd need to look at first (and a test question would be, is it a bound control?)

However, you're saying it seems to be located to a specific PC?

Is it a local copy of the application or a shared copy?
Could that PC be configured differently from the others?
