Hi, I have a app running in Sybase ADB Version 11.0. I provide all security acces to the users can share the folder where the DB placed. The issue is when I try to open any table directly thru the network path I have the error 7008. But I can open the table on the server with any problem. I need to open this table to get some information of them. to supply other app. Please anyone help me about that. I already reindex the tables. but still with the same error. 7008

Error 7008 means "file could not be opened". If it is preceded in the error log by 32, this means, "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." This typically happens if the file is open by the server and another user tries to access it in local server mode, or if it is opened in local server mode, and either the server or another user tries to open it. The only supported configuration where multiple users can access the same file is with all users connecting in remote server mode.

If only one user is trying to open the file, then that user probably does not have permission to open files across the network on that directory. If you are using the Advantage Database Server, the files must be located on the same machine as the server.
