WinXP and Win7 networking are different. Have a look for a mix of SMB 
versions. Different networking protocol. Make sure it's all the same. 
Are the tables on aserver? Or one machine using Paradox sharing with 
others? BDE set up exactly the same? Local share = true on EVERY 
machine?  Are there Win10 or 11 machines on the network?

When you lock a record on one machine, can you move to that record on 
another machine and lock it also?
