Access WebApp The command or action isn't currently available: EditRecord RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created very basic WebApp. I am having a small table with Emp Code as Primary Key and few more columns about details of employes (Name/Grade/project etc.). I have created a WebApp with a view to allow users to enter Emp Code and a custom button to popup another view with details of emp Code entered in Parent view. This works fine.<o:p></o:p>

    Now I want users to edit and correct few details in popup view (or I can even show another view using change view command). So in the 'On Load' event I added command 'EditRecord'. This is also wroking fine. It is allowing me to update some of the details and those are getting saved to the corresponding access table. <o:p></o:p>

    However, this works only for my login. If I share this Webapp with other users and ask them to update details. They are able to see the details on Popup view but not able to edit the record. Getting message - "The command or action isn’t currently available: EditRecord"<o:p></o:p>

    Do I need to set any permission level at my Access table or something?<o:p></o:p>

    This is the only first app I am creating, neither I am very familier with Access. Would be great if I can get some help with this.<o:p></o:p>

  • Hi h_s_k,

    >>Do I need to set any permission level at my Access table or something?

    Based on the error message, I think the users did not have permission for your sharepoint site. Since Access web app was published on SharePoint site, it inherit the permission from SharePoint site. If the end user have only read permission, when he tried to modify the records from Access web app, he will get this error message. I suggest you grant corresponding permission for the user like full permission in SharePoint site.

    Best Regards,
