I have a shared third party application (PACS )that uses Paradox
tables (don't know what version). The third party app works just fine
when accessing shared data.
I have downloaded the Merant ODBC (v3.6) paradox drivers to test out
concurrent access - ostensibly with Crystal Reports and Access 97.
Problem - using the ODBC drivers I get a directory is controlled by
other .NET file.
Shared directories have been properly set up in both the ODBC DSN and
the BDE Configuration utility.
BDE Administrator - as shipped with third party app is v5.01
Merant Paradox driver v3.6 (recently downloaded 2/10/2000)
The Merant documentation refers to a PARADOX.NET file, while my third
party app generates a PDOXUSRS.NET file.
As I am fairly inexperienced with Paradox/BDE:
1) What are the differences (engine version, table versions, etc)
between the PARADOX.NET and PDOXUSRS.NET locking mechanisms?
2) Is there any way, that anybody knows, I can get the Merant divers
to access the PDOXUSRS.NET file (locking mechanism for the third party
Thanks in advance
