Problems with Emptytable.....

I use Emptytable to delete all records in my table. The problem is that I get "Access violation" on some computers, and I don't have a clue why! Is it possible that it has something to do with networks. It works just fine on computers that are "Single", without internet connection or any other network connections.
(The table property "Exclusive" is set to true for the table..)
I use Delphi Developer 2.0

Thanx!

Have you tried running it from Delphi or the EXE alone?
I don't remember which version of Delphi did it but it opened the table also and then you can't set the table to be exclusive...

I run the application alone (.EXE) on the computers that i failed on.

I use Emptytable on WinNT. I am connected to the Internet and the network and it's working fine.

You need to close the table before doing Emptytable.

Before I use EmptyTable I use the following line:
Dm6.Table1.Active:=False;
This should be the same as closing the table.
I must have done some stupid, because I cannot find anything that seems to be theproblemsource...
It looks like this:
Dm6.Table1.Active:=False;
Dm6.Table1.EmptyTable;
Dm6.Table1.Active:=True;

Do you write something like this:

Table1.Close;
Table1.Exclusive:=True;
Table1.EmptyTable;
Table1.Exclusive:=False;
Table1.Open;

I tried this too, and it didn't work...
I use the installationdisks I've made, and the function Emptytable only works on a computer that has Delphi installed, not on any other....

Asuming, you are working with paradox, In the InstallShield, Did you entered the General options and marked the option BDE(Borland Database Engine)?

Thank you ronit, for your suggestion. It turned out, I had only selected partial BDE installation, and probably there is necessary to select a "Query driver" aswell( wich I hadn't). However, I tried to select "Full BDE installation", and the problem was solved, just like that!

Thank you all!
To ronit: If you want the points for this, please propose an "Answer".

Thank you for your help, ronit. I guess I'd better R.T.F.M. (Read The Fuckin' Manual)
