No pain at all.
Check out this thread on another forum:
it asks the same question for the same reason.
Edit: Didn't realize that LaRetta had pulled posts from that forum too.
The basic technique is referenced by OldAdvanceMan in the last post on that thread. Lock out record creation in A&P, make a NewRecord button that runs a new record script with Full Access Privileges and also checks the FoundCount of the records to confirm that it is at or under your max.
Is this basically what you're after?
Keep in mind bcooney's points in that thread as well...what happens if they want to buy?
