View Full Version : Files Left Open

I have a problem with Alpha 5 not closing files properly. The problem manifests itself when try to run an application that updates a table that is effectively closed - a message saying that the application needs exclusive access appears.
The applications are all running on a network with a shared file server. Is there anyway I can see what files are open and which client currently holds them - or even better, is there anyway I can close all open files from the central server?

We have a fairly massive application with hundreds of open databases. We only encounter the file open by another user when doing posting type jobs. Depending on your server, you can determine who is the culprit. We use Windows NT 4.0 on our server. File manager can tell you who has the files open. you have the option to close all users off of a file. We use it to get some pretty heavy batch processing done. Hope this helps.
