This may be a silly question but I need help.
When the client is connected locally, it closes the database (a random access file) when it exits. That is fine.
But when the client is connected to a database on the network server, what is the appropriate way to close it. A client cannot close it since another client may be accessing it. So, I assume it is a responsibility of the database server. Since we run the server in a DOS window, we close it by either closing the DOS window or by terminating the session by using CTRL + C. In this case, how do I know this event and close the database?
Or do I even care to close the database in case of a network server?
