Users of an old 3.5 pdox dos app want to now access the app concurrently from
two or three workstations. Very little pal code in the application except for a
complex report script. Most of the app is all forms, many of them multi-table
master-detail or master-n-detail.
Is it just a configuration issue and purchase of extra copies of paradox (have
to find them too), and users not accessing same data records in the same
table concurrently, or do I have to do programming to handle the record
locking so the app won't hang or kick users out or lock up due to hits on the
same data page / table / records.
The users will not be updating the same records, but do wish to add records to
the same tables using the same look-up tables and the same forms.
Any hints much appreciated, as I have not worked with paradox before in a
multi-user situation. In fact, have not used paradox since version 4.5, but
trying to help out a first client from about 8 years ago still using a system
I wrote back then when first starting out.
