  3. Hi Nick, How can I get sharepoint to respect the record lock set by MS Acess 2010 on records that is currently being edited? MS Access that is published to sharepoint does not seem to recognise the record lock made by MS Access.

      Hi Anna.. I am not sure about that. I haven’t played with that features with MS Access 2010 and SP2010 integration.. You may want to raise this question on MS forums and it may help

      Sorry about that.. Thanks.
