Flock does lock your records to prevent two people from being able to modify the same record at the same time.

It sounds like it is working just fine and providing you with a message to prevent 2 people from working on the same record.

Usually by setting the permissions up so that only those who entered the record can modify it .. will help to keep this from happening, as they will only be able to modify one record at a time.

If you are allowing many people to modify records, you will want to keep the file locking turned on.
