Problem with NT and Visual Fox

We have a process in Visual Fox which uses a database file in share mode for a certain number of users. Every day we need to update this database file in exclusive mode but any user remains using the file (because didn't logged off) then we cannot update the file, so in order to make our update we need to kill the sessions which are holding the file. This we have to do it manually right now, but since this is a process that runs at night we are looking for a way to kill this sessions automatically.
Somebody help us????

Before killing the process you need to consider the possible data loss from dropping an open connection within VFP.  You could end up with data corruption or loss if a record is open for editing when you kill off the connection.
