Paradox / index / Network

I've devlopped an application using Paradox 7 on Delphi 2.0 and working with 3 users. But, index are out of date once or twice a day. I use DbiSaveChanges after each post and delete, i've disables vcache.386. Can I have a real solution?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Tried upgrading the BDE? Quite a few versions of the BDE is rather buggy.

Please be sure that all users are pointing to the same PDOXUSRS.NET file. This is normally set in the BDE configuration for each user.

In our application, we provide the option of setting the path for the file in the BDE Configuration, specifying in the applications' INI file, or, by default, we set the path to the same directory as the location of the Paradox tables. Just for background, the application ini file has a section called SystemDatabase with a NetFileDir setting. If the setting is set to *BDE* than we skip the whole routine (and use the setting in the BDE). If the setting is non-blank, than we use the specified path as the Sessions' netfiledir. Otherwise, we query the alias parameters for the path, and use that for the netfiledir.

We have seen a dramatic drop in support problems after writing and putting the following code along our startup path that sets the NetFileDir property of the session variable:


{*** Set the NetFileDir to point to the ConfigDB directory ***}
{*** unless overridden in INI File                         ***}
tmpStr := appini.ReadString( 'SystemDatabase',
                             'NetFileDir', '' );
if ANSIUpperCase(tmpStr) <> '*BDE*' then
begin
  if tmpStr = '' then      {* Use ConfigDB Path *}
  begin
    tmpList := TStringList.Create;
    try
      try
        Session.GetAliasParams( 'SysDatabase', tmpList );
      except
        { this message gets shown twice }
          MessageDlg(      FmtLoadStr(ADMALIASERROR,
                      ['SystmDatabase']),
                        mtWarning, [mbOk], 0);
      end;
      tmpStr := tmpList.Values['PATH'];
     finally
       tmpList.Free;
     end;
   end
   else
     tmpStr := ExpandFileName(tmpStr);
   if tmpStr <> '' then      
   {* In case we didn't find one, don't change *}                            Session.NetFileDir := tmpStr;
end;
