How can i put my database (paradox format) on a computer in a network (win95) and access it from other computers?
I have set an alias to point to the network directory, I set the databasename property of all of my tables to the alias name but I keep receiving the msg "Directory is locked" or something like this...

How do I login using a password?

You must distribute the BDE to all the workstations from whom you want to access the paradox files and reconfigure the alias to the appropriate path.

When you use a database object, you can set the LoginPrompt property on True.

Dear TeRReF, I edited the q. to comment that I set the alias.

The reason for posting this question is about that "dir is locked" msg.

Thanx for the password issue. I will give it a try.

That's probably because the database not configured to allow multiple users at the same time. So if a user is using the database at that moment, no one else is allowed. You must enable mutiple access  to solve your problem...

Good luck !
