VB4.0 and Btrieve 6.15

    I have a problem accesing Btrieve 6.15 with Visual Basic 4.0. When I
  open the Btrieve database and a table of this DB, it appears in the
  Novell monitor like "locked exclusive", but Im openning the file in a
  sharing mode.
 
       Here is the sintaxis of my code:
 
 
          Dim Db as database
          Dim Tb as recordset
 
          Set Db=("n:\scala\file.ddf",false,false,"btrieve;")
          Set Tb = Db.OpenRecordset("SL Customer" , dbOpenTable)
          tb.lockedits= false
 
 
 
 
       I think this way is a sharing mode, maybe theres any patch for this
       combination of products
 
 
       Thanks for your attention, Ill be waiting for any response.

Hi ,Alejandro. I recent program  with Engine Btreive  but I buy a custom
Control for Visual Basic that access direct to DDF Table.
This Control are there most power, and you can save most of your program.
Otherwise I can look another mode to access to DDF,Yout E-mail have some bug,you
can put yuor Visual Basic code?

Another choice to open DDF file is with Microsoft Access.
You must import in Access your DDF file and then you can open
the Table from Visual Basic with functions to access Table.
This method is more slow then direct access to DDF file.

IF you have any question please send me.

I don´t have trouble accesing DDF files, my problem is that when i open Btrieve with Visual Basic, I can see the Btrieve file in Novell's Monitor and not in BTRMON, and they  appear like  "locked exclusive".
