    Question Unanswered: Need info about odbc and sql through access2k

    I recently started with a company that uses access for a front end and sql2000 for the back. They have set up an ODBC connection though access2k to reach sql2k. This works fine but fouls up in regards to the record locking. You can set record locking in access but it has no effect. In the office help it says 'data in a form, report, or query from an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) database is treated as if the No Locks setting were chosen, regardless of the RecordLocks property setting.'

    Also, the access lock option info says it 'could' lock the few records around the record you wish to lock.

    So my question is this: How can i (without destroying this ODBC link from access2k to sql2k) get locks for individual records to work successfully?

    any info would be great, thanks
