    Can I use Application.lock to wrap DB operations?

    Hi, I use ASP & MS Access. I want to implement a "Block on Select" scenario, which means only one user at a time can read some data from a table or a recordset. Other users have to wait until the first user is done.

    Can I do it like this:

    Application.lock
    DB operations here
    Application.unlock

    Will this guarantee the exclusive reading of the recordset?

    Thanks

    that should work. unusual but it'll server the purpose. you just have to inform the user in line to wait their turn.

    the unusual part is to searialize user DB access. you must have a good reason for that. Normally, when a record is written to it is already locked.
