You find that fields are not updateable in a data access page that contains the Office Developer Workflow toolbar when you view the data access page in Microsoft Access 2000. This happens even though you clicked one of the transition buttons (that is New, Edit, Resolve, or Assign) on the toolbar before you tried to change any data. The page is updateable, however, when you view the page in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 if you first click one of the transition buttons.


The Microsoft Office Developer Workflow toolbar fails to unlock the data in the data access page if you view the page in Access. The behavior in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 is the intended behavior.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Service Release 1 (SR-1).

To obtain SR-1, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.  This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 Developer SR-1.
