    Multiusers connecting

    Has anyone had a problem with multiple users signing into a database when one user has signed in and any subsequent user is locked out and has a solid hourglass for a while and then get a message 'File in Use'.

    Here is what we do. We deploy the front end from a Novel Application Launcher (NAL) to the users Temp folder and then open it. The _be file resides on the LAN.

    This has been working fine up until three weeks ago. Everyone has full privileges to the _be tables.

    ???

    Thanks John,

    My problem turned out to be that the network people gave read write access to the back-end database and not the folder. So when one user signed in and created the .ldb file no-one else could use the control file and was told the file is in use. After giving read/write to the folder to the users 'Peace once again reigned across the Lan'. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>
    This all came about because we are putting in new servers and the network people are assigning read only to all files until someone complains.
