    Unanswered: Trouble inserting into a table...

    Hey everyone...
    I've got a little problem inserting values into a talble.
    I've tried:
    direct SQL (Query Analyzer)
    MS Access table editing
    openrecordset -> addnew (vb)
    runsql "INSERT INTO (vb)

    all of them timed out...

    Is it possible that somehow this table gets locked?
    I'm not using any triggers or similar things to edit & lock the table while editing it.

    I've got the same table in another db and there it works fine (even has more records in it).

    Any ideas?

    Could be locked.
    Do the insert in query analyser then in another window

    select * from master..sysprocesses
    and see if anything is blocked.
    You can see what the blocking spid is doing by
    dbcc inputbuffer (spid).

    sp_who / sp_who2 may give more info.

    If this isn't the case then run dbcc checkdb on the database.

    hi nigelrivett...
    first - thanks for the reply!
    i've made such a query when it was locked - now I don't seem to find out in wich field to look if a table is blocked by a process...
    only thing with 'lock' in it is 'lock monitor' - but I think that's an SQL proc or something like that - correct?

    Thanks for helpin'!

    coroner, use sp_who2 and look for a column tittled "BlkBy". A number in this column represents the SPID of the blocking process.

    Hello Paul,
    Thanks for the reply - I've found the process locking the table.
    Only problem is - it seems a normal ms-access connection (opening this table) - but I cannot understand why it's locked - I've got all my access forms and functions set to dynaset or snapshot....
