The Planner is a multi-user device

The Planner should allow for several people to use it at the at the same time.

 

If this is not the case then please consider the following

1. Make sure the Planner is properly set up

Choose a time when you are the only person using the Planner - you need exclusive access for this task

 

 If you are using Access 2003 

  • Open the Planner
  • Click on Tools (in the top menu bar of the Main page)
  • click on Options
  • select the Advanced tab
  • On the right hand side the settings should be
    • Default Open mode = Shared
    • Default record locking = No locks
    • Open databases using record level locking (ticked)
  • Close the Planner
 

If you are using Access 2007 or 2010

  • Open the Planner
  • Click on the Microsoft Options button (top left hand corner)
  • Click on Access Options (bottom of the window that pops up)
  • Click on Advanced
  • Scroll down to find the last section also named Advanced
  • The settings in this section should be
    • Default Open mode = Shared
    • Default record locking = No locks
    • Open databases using record level locking (ticked)
  • Close the Planner

2. Opening and closing the Planner

 It is best to always open the Planner from within Access, that is
  • Start Access
