This article explains error messages that may occur in a multiuser environment.
Attempting to Lock - Press ESC to Cancel
This error usually appears when a command that performs an automatic or a manual lock is unsuccessful. It appears in place of the SET MESSAGE message when REPROCESS is set to -2, 0, or automatic, and NOTIFY is set on.
Cannot write to read only file (111)
This error usually appears when the user attempts to change a file that has been marked read-only. The error appears in a FoxPro error message box.
Exclusive open of file is required (110)
This error appears when an INDEX ON, INSERT, MODIFY STRUCTURE, PACK, REINDEX, or ZAP command is issued for a database that is not open for exclusive access. This error appears in a FoxPro error message box.
File access denied (1705)
This error appears when the user attempts to open a database for exclusive access and the database is already opened by another user. It also appears when the user attempts to open a database that is already opened for exclusive access by another user. This error appears in a FoxPro error message box.
File in use by another (108)
This error is displayed in a FoxPro error message box, and appears when one of the following occurs:
- FoxPro attempts to lock a file when the file or a record is locked by another user.
- The user presses the ESC key in response to the "Attempting to lock" error message.
- You try to save an additional file to the root directory when the maximum number (512) of subdirectories and files already exist in the MS-DOS root directory
Record in use by another (109)
This error appears when the user attempts to lock a record using an automatic locking command when the record is locked by another user. This error also appears when the user presses the ESC key in response to the "Attempting to lock" or "Waiting for lock" error messages. This error appears in a FoxPro error message box.
Record not available. Please wait
This error appears when a command that performs an automatic or manual lock is unable to lock a record because the record is part of a transaction for another user. This error appears in place of the SET MESSAGE message when the NETWARE.PLB library is used to implement Novell Transaction Processing and the "live lock" condition described above occurs.
This error can also be caused if VSHARE is not loaded. For more information about the absence of VSHARE causing this error message, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
