Multiplan Network File Locking PSS ID Number: Q24762 Article last modified on 08-31-1987 PSS database name: D_MPlan
Question: How does Multiplan handle file locking when running on a network?
Response: If one user loads a file that has read/write access, another user will not be able to load that same file until it is “released” by the first user via the Transfer Clear Window, Transfer Clear All, or Quit commands. If the file is made read-only, multiple users will be able to load the file at the same time.
