If your getting this message, the data has been changed sometime during your edit process. A couple of things to help....
1.) Be sure to "refresh" the data before going into edit mode. Filemaker is not proactive in updating records that have been changed, so your ESS data cache can get outdated fairly quickly. Make sure the record is "fresh" before going in and updating it. This will alleviate many locks.
2.) Consider updating to Filemaker 12, where you can over-ride the ESS update lock dialog. Note, you HAVE to be careful about this, as again, if you data is "old", you may end up over-writing legitimate updates to the data that took place prior to the current update. If your confident that is safe, this feature of FM 12 will get you around the dialog hosing things up for you.
Thanks, Lee. More reason to schedule my jump to 12.
In pondering your answer, I'm realizing that this is more likely an issue with ESS and refresh, since the error does indicate that there have been other changes to the record since I opened it. I'll try a few things with refresh steps.
