I am developing a facilities E-booking system using ASP and MS Access Database.
Currently my problem is preventing a new user from booking the same facility which is
already booked at a given time period.
E.g User 1 books Room 1 0n 7th Apr 07 from 8 am - 11 am.
Then user 2 wants to book the same Room 1 on the same 7th Apr 07 but from 10 am onwards.
Even though this not possible in real world, I don't know the coding so as to alert
user 2 that the booking can't be done as there is an existing booking at this time.
Please help me solve this problem.
Many Thanks in Advance.

what is the UI that you're using like? because if you've got a timeline, you could block out the times that are already booked for that room, and then in the options for booking, perhaps a drop down, have it dynamically driven that if they choose a certian start them, the end time that it shows will be before the next booking so that times don't over lap, it's one possibility...
