I am having a bit of an annoying problem with my Access application.
The data is held on a SQL 2000 server with Access front-end.
I have a form (Form A) used for editing records, this form is launched
from a command button on another form (Form B) and filters to a
sepcific records on Form A dependant on the record in Form B. Nothing
special here I use this technique all over this application.
Form A opens up and displays the record I want but when ever I make a
change and try to exit the form or save the record I get the following
"The record has been changed by another user...Select Method of Range class failing???

...move cell contents
Is there a way to move a cell contents to another cell with a formula. ex:
if a5="Name" then move g5 to j5? Also, I am using

I have the formula in different place pick random names from different list.
This does work, but I have different list with some of the same names and
with the random pick I do not want the same name to appear.
Thanks for any and all help.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-

ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

One problem is that if no changes to the current record have been changed,

If you do make a change, the code as is should work.

but write my own so I can easily deal with this.

To add information to the legend, you need to add to a series name.
Right click on the chart, select Source Data from the pop up menu, click
on the series tab, select a series, and either type something in the
name box, or click in it and select a cell with the mouse.
