Description kelvine 2004-02-29 14:36:58 UTC

In the near future I may need to have read only access to live data from an 
application that has dBase tables.

The problem is using the dBase driver the first user gets 
read/write access and each subsequent user gets read access.

This will potentially lock the real users out of their application as they are 
not always going to be the first user to access the data.

If had the ability to set up access to dBase files as read only 
as an option in the data source, this would get around the problem.

This would also enhance the use of dBase within In a small 
office situation it is common for a single person to maintain data whilst 
other people simply have read only access to the file. Eg Office telephone 
list. By defining each user except the main user as being read only, the main 
user could still have read/write access. The current approach could be 
maintained if the user's access was not defined, or two or more users were 
inadvertently defined as read/write.

I don't know if this is possible, but I thought I would make the suggestion.

grabbing, targeting. No intention to really work on it, but BH won't do either :)
