DxDes/DxDatabook multi user problem

Hello all,

It seems that only one of us can accesss DxDatabook libraries at a time. I configured DxDatabook to use Excel spreadsheets as data sources via ODBC. It does work so long as only one user is runing DxDes with DxDatabook. I have checked that the spreadsheets are being used 'read-only' by the ODBC layer. I don't see any 'lock' files in the directory where the spreadsheets live. That location is a windows network share, if that is relevant. We are all using the same up to date PADs/DxD install on Win 7.

 

Right now I'm out of ideas, Does anyone have any ideas of the likely cause?

 

If I haven't mentioned anything wehich would be useful to help diagnose, just ask me.

 

All the best,

Daniel.
