Table Buffering

Table Buffering

Table Buffering

I have set my default settings to pessimistic record buffering, yet when I run the form an try to add data I get an error 1596 stating that the buffering is not on? I cahnged the buffering setting to table buffering and got the same results error 1596. Is there a bug or something? What can I do to fix this as it is driving me nuts. Thanks!

RE: Table Buffering

When you say you try to "add data", are you adding a new record or modifying an existing record?  

Just about everything I've read about table buffering says that 'optimistic table' is the wise choice.  Try switching over to that to see if there's any difference.


RE: Table Buffering


Pessimistic buffering prevents other users in a multi-user environment from accessing a particular record or table while you're making changes to it.

SO if some one in the network has got the record even for reading, you wont be able to lock this record under pessimistic lock. Optimistic record locking will be more suitable for multiuser databases in general, UNLESS you want to stop anyone else from using the record even for reading. More so trouble some is file is locked in pessimistic buffering.

I suggest you to OTIMISTIC ROW BUFFER as your byffer mode. This locks the records when the writing is done. Also you can do the writing with some some check as to .. of that is a success or a failure.

See for example the following thread..

Replace dont work in very rare occasions

If you have some pessimistic buffer in some ares.. then it becomes essential that you check fo the uccess of this also..

  lLock = CURSORSETPROP(..........)
  IF lLock
     ** If youe need a message post that..

Hope this helps you
