Multiuser in Access Database

Multiuser in Access Database

Multiuser in Access Database

(OP)
I need to know how to get my Access database to accept orders into the Order table from more than one person at a time. The system is set to No Locks, Shared. The tables are held on the server (WinNT) and the workstations (WIN98) have the 'front end'. If two people are entering orders and hit the Accept button at the same time Access cannot handle it. One PC gets a new order number, the other doesn't.

Any ideas - I'd appreciate it!!!

RE: Multiuser in Access Database

Received a great countif from you fine people the other day that when placed in column H (Panels)
=(COUNTIF(G2,"<>0"))*40
and manually(blah) copied down tested if column G (Pieces) had non-zero's to multiply it by 40.

My boss says:
The sheet ultimately needs to be sorted by column D (Department).  Then only applying the countif  (shown above) if column D contains a department name listed in the vlookup table located in column K.   Then subtotaled (using SUM) for every change in column D (Department), results summary placed below data in column G (Panels) and column H (Pieces).
