Paradox tables repeatedly "reverting" on a local install
Posted on 2002-04-19
I have an application which is currently running on just one machine. I am running paradox tables using the BDE. On one table, it seems like after every third or fourth update, the data reverts to a previous state.
The application keeps track of totals of numbers and how they got that way, the 'total' record is updated from a 'charges' record. The next time a 'charge' is made, a new charges records is made and the 'totals' record is updated to reflect what the new total is.
Every so often, the database holding the totals goes back to a previous set of data, from 3, 4, or 5 sets of transactions ago.
I can see the behavior reflected in the data (the charge table keeps track of the total before and after it is updated) but I can't replicate the problem on my machine.
This may be a BDE setting problem, any suggestions? I am currently using posts on the records.
