    Remote Desktop Database Needs Help

    I have a database on a remote desktop so numerous people can use it at the same time. For some reason if two people try to select from the same drop down in a form at the same time one of them will get locked out and have to wait quite awhile. Does anyone have an idea of how to make this work better?

    you're sure that it's happening at the exact same time?? that's pretty unique, even with a lot of users.

    do you have record locks on? It doesn't sound like it, if they're both in the same form at the same time. If you do though, what's the setting on it?? You can find it on the form property sheet.

    It is set for No Locks. The problem shows up when we are doing a training on the use of the database so there are a number of people trying to do the same thing at the same time. I don't think this would happen in a normal situation, but I was asked to find out if there is a way to fix this.

    this might help: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&h...7&pf=p&pdl=300

    also, one thread I saw posted this update as a solution that fixed their issue with locking out on a remote machine: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969084

    other than that, I'm not sure. I've only used Excel 97 through the remote desktop connection in windows (and that was many years ago), so my experience with this is nill.
