Hi - is there a presumption that if you are running the application in "alone" mode, then you are the only person interacting with the database? i.e that the server is not running and there are no client connections? When in "alone" mode, if the above is true, then you do not need to be concerned with locking etc, because there is only one GUI open and one person interacting with the database?

cheer, Stephen

Hi Stephen,

You mean like this one:
From the instructions:
You may assume that at any moment, at most one program is accessing the database file; therefore your locking system only needs to be concerned with multiple concurrent clients of your server.
Check your instructions for a similar statement (search for the word "assume" - there are normally only 2 places it is used in the entire instructions.

Regards, Andrew
