Record locked message


I am getting constant messages saying that another user "is modifying this record."  I know that the other user  (it seems to be just one particular user) is in the database but they are NOT editing the record(s) that I am on.

The layout has a tab control with 7 tabs, allows edit of 4 other tables, 3 portals (one-to-many off the main table), and uses data from multiple other related tables. 

The message doesn't tell me which record/table is being edited.  How can I tell which?  Is the record locked just by the other user accessing it OR do they have to make a change without saving it?

I just rolled this app out and instituted security.  Also my first FileMaker app ever.

Thanks in advance,
