    Unanswered: How to prevent users from changing records on search form!

    Hi there

    I have a form with a text box used for searching records however on return of records I noticed the form is editable and I do not want users to be able to change the details.

    So I changed allow edits to no however when I try and search on the form with allow edits set to yes I notice that I can no longer search. It says record not I change the form back to allow edits yes.

    I tried changing to using a combo box to find record on form, but also I can no longer search on the form.

    Pls. how can one get to search and records returned cannot be changed by users.

    Many Thanks for ur help in advance.

    Set the Locked property to Yes ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...
