I have a database in which i would like to share with numerous users. It is currently on a share drive & everyone has access to it. After testing it with 3 users at once (before it goes life) i found that only 1 user at a time can go in & enter information on a form. Is there a way to get around this?

Check your Options Settings.

If you can't identify the issue, post the Advanced options here for further advice.

Hi

Following on from MyBoo and assuming the Options > Settings > Advanced options are ok (eg Open mode = 'Shared', default lock = 'Edited record') then go into the design view for each form and select menu option : Edit > Select Form, menu option : View > Properties > select 'Data' tab > 'Record Locks' property > set to 'Edited Record'.

HTH, Andrew
