I did the initial install of the computers here in my office. Identical 
hardware and Windows verions. Same BDE and Paradox version. Run alla 
Winodws updates.

That was also I thought I had, maybe that some kind of DNS problem that 
made it search for the SQL server in the wrong place but this wouldn't 
explain why it has problem with only one of the databases.

Azure is not involved.

That is my main theory. If the the ODBC driver for some strange reason 
are different on the two computers - that could explain the problem. I 
have no idea how they can be different, but thas is my next thing to check.

The problem is that testing is soooo timeconsuming and you can imageinen 
that a retail company that struggled already before Corona, don't want 
to spend money on something they think should just work.
