Hi Ken....  Thanks for reminding me about your book.  Wow this is very interesting.

One thing it says you should change false to true in the bde admin.  Mine is set to false but it still functions.  What specifically will this change?  Could this fix the problem I have been having?  I believe if you have two people in the same file (on certain files) the data corrupts in some cases.  Could changing it to true fix this problem?
