Why is it when one certain user is in the DBASE no one else can get in - but when everyone else is in and this user isn't, she still is able to get in - all our settings are the same - Shared, no locks and the open database by using record-leveli locking is unchecked, this person was checked but i unchecked it, but it didn't matter - please advise - thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Has been many years since I used DBase, but I recall issues where the file would get locked by DOS/Netware.

Though ancient, this may provide insight that this lock comes from the operating system level.

Any thoughts?

    What version of db are you using? Do all users use the same version? As she has had access to file locking, DBase could be remembering this and is still opening the file using the lock. Try getting her to use a different PC and see if it still happens. If it does, then try removing her access rights from the db completely, and re-allowing them as read only.
