Paradox Tables & PDOXUSRS.LCK file

(Paradox is set to run in network mode)

When I run two SQLs Back to Back on a paradox table, PDOXUSRS.LCK file gets created!  The problem is if I run these two sqls over and over the PDOXUSRS.LCK keeps growing and growing.  BUT if I only run one SQL over and over, the PDOXUSRS.LCK does not grow. Why is this PDOXUSRS.LCK growing when two sqls run back to back multiple times.  The other problem is that because the file keeps growing.  This file reaches 25 MEGS. and it busts.  Errors start appearing!

These queries are simple select queries.  
(Select * from xxx where TDdate > 1/15/95 )

Phil,

Are these queries simple select queries, or are the insert / update / delete queries?  Or does this make difference to rate at which the LCK file grows?

This problem is specific to Paradox tables and can be caused
in any BDE (16 or 32 Bit) application that meet some or all
of the following criteria:

  1)  The Executable is in the same directory as the table.
  2)  The Private Directory is not correctly set or not set
      at all.
  3a) Delphi: Having a TTable open on a paradox table and
      then performing multiple TQuery operations.
  3b) C / C++: Having a table open with DbiOpenTable and

      then performing multiple queries with DbiQExec and/or
      DbiQExecDirect.
  4)  LOCAL SHARE set to true in the BDE Configuration
      Utility on the System page.

To solve the problem, make sure that your application has
done ALL of the following:

  1)  Under the directory where the executable is, create
      three new directories: TABLES, PRIV, and NET.  Place
      all the tables for the application into the TABLES
      directory.  
  2)  Set the session's private directory to the PRIV
      directory.  Take the following steps according to
      the software you are using.

Hope this helps.
