I think you may fix this through the User Setup at the File Menu.
(Or something like that, I use the Norwegian version.)
It is a checkbox called something like Optimistic Post lock which must be
checked to let others share files. Furthermore, distribute the .APR file to
everyone, make sure the .DBF is placed at a network drive.
Also make sure all drive references in the macros are referenced to that
network drive. This will force you to start the Approach on the machine the
DBF is on through the network drive, not through C:\
Hope this helps.
