    Default un-lock error

    We are using A4v8. Recently, we had to correct a record number issue in a set.
    Now, anytime we attempt to save a record with F10, we get the following
    message:

    Lock error un-locking

    If you hit F10 again, the record is saved, but it is an annoying extra step.

    What does this error message mean, and how might we correct the problem?

    Don't recall seeing that message before.

    How did you correct your 'record number issue'?

    Did you pack the database after the 'correction'?

    When something works, and another problem is fixed, and then something else doesn't work, I try to retrace the steps involved.....

    Al, it's almost too hard to explain what we did.......there are several sets, databases
    and indexes involved. But, after a new idea was tried here, the error message has gone away.

    It sure would be nice to know what that error message means and\or what it was pointing to.

    Isn't the hot key for saving a record F9?

    DOS world vs Windows world.

    Remember this is the Alpha 4 (DOS) forum.

    Al, somehow the record update numbering got confused when a record was deleted,
    I manually adjusted the record. This seems to have corrected the problem.
