We are trying to decide on the method of opening our data files in our application.
1.Open all at the start keep them open throughout the program them close them ast the end.
2. Open and close files as we nned them in the program.
One of things we are wary of is the Antivirus auto scanning feature. How does the Anitvirus work when a file is open in a file based application given the 2 ways for opening files I have outlined above.
