Database Lockout

I am developing a database app using DAO classes. One of my views contains a spliiter window ala Windows explorer that displays information from a table in the righ hand pane. The information was retrieved using a SQL statement SELECT * from table. The other pane displays information from multiple tables using an SQL inner join statement. There is 1 table that is common for both views. These recordset objects are created in sepperate clases created using the RUNTIME (class,etc.. etc) statement in the OnCreatClient meber function of the child window conatianing this spitter view.  Now at last the problem. When I try to close the child window containing this view I get the error CANNOT LOCK TABLE "tablename". This is the table that is common to both classes. I have code in both classes descrutors to close the recordset set objects. Note I have only 1 databse object create in the App class. Both recordset objects are connected to this database object. Help?.

Yes I use the CDaoRecordset::Open statment. In the OnCreate function of each class I use recordset = new CDaoRecordset (theApp.database); to connect the recordset object to the single global database object, I then use  recordset->Open(dbOpenSnapshot,SQLstmt); to create the recordset object.

Take a close look of the nOptions parameter of the CDaoRecorset::Open(...) function. There you can set the way the recordset co-works with the other recordsets, that have open the table. When you do changes to a record of a recordet, whenever an Update is called (which may happen when you close the recordset), DAO locks the table for writing, and if it's already locked by another recordset, this exception is thrown. You have to open one of your recordsets for read-only. This is done when you set the nOption parameter to dbReadOnly.
I'm not informed with the specification of your project, so I can't tell more, but if you read carefully what MSDN says about CDaoRecordet::Open(...), you may come to a conclusion.

Hope I was help.
