My database houses several types of inventory and I will have about 30 employees accessing the db. I'd like to have some of the forms run a macro (that runs several update queries) upon closing. If I add the macro and 2 or 3 (or more) people happen to close the form at the same time, what type of issues will I run into, if any? All of the forms in my database are based on "CurrentUser()". I can't seem to find any answers anywhere online... Any ideas or suggestions would be great!

All that should happen is the the first user would "lock" the records until the update is finished and then the next user's queries would be run etc.
So all it should do is delay shutdown.
They might possibly get a message to say the Record had been changed, but I doubt it.
