Subject:Re: lockRecord() - doesn't

try/endtry is what I normally do but I was trying to show just minimum 
to keep it simple as possible

This code should produce the same results as yours
    tcu                tcursor

;//open tcursor on tbl



If I check locks interactively (Tools | Security | Display Locks) it 
only shows open and image locks

if I do it using":ZONE:ProcLock.db")

Then it shows the record lock

Interactive or programmatically (enumlocks) it does not show the record 
lock of Machine_1, however it does show the open and image locks of both 

If on Machine_2 I run the same code as Machine_1 then enumlocks will 
show the record lock for Machine_2, but not Machine_1.

Same results for Machine_3

So it looks like the record lock is only shown for the machine that 
placed it but not the other machinesè record locks. tcursors are not 
closed and form remains open so record lock should be in effect.

Network is peer-to-peer and table locking is recognized by all machines. 
Just lockRecord() giving me grief.
