Access VBA: BeforeSave Event?

Access VBA: BeforeSave Event?

Access VBA: BeforeSave Event?

Here is my quandry: We have an Access database that creates forms that is located on a server that anyone can access. The issue we have is that they need to request read-write access to open the file and create a form which then adds the information provided into the form into tables on the database. If the user does not have read-write access, Access tells the user that they will not be able to use the database if it is in read-only status. My suggestion is to have coding that will fire in the event that somebody tried to save a copy of the database. Is this a possibility, or is there a work around to accomplish this?
