hi svenj,

have you controlled each bde configuration?

if there overall the same netfiledir (called NET DIR in the BDE Administrator by configuration|driver|native|Paradox) entry?

if no the edit it to the same entry

if yes, then if in the DB-Dir *.lck files, delete them (make sure that all are disconnectet before)

hi svenj,

appendix
the NET DIR Entry should pointed to a networkdrive/path the same for all and not local like c:\tmp

That worked just fine, but how do I prevent other users from editing the same record?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi svenj,

if you use paradox, the current record will be automatically locked if his state changed to dsEdit. a other User can't edit this record. If the user try to edit the record, which is edited by other a exception is raised. Therefor is nothing to do except to handle the exception, but the default message like "Record is locked by user xy" is good enough.
