HELP Write-Protected Files

I am using Filemaker 5.5 on a server without the aid of Filemaker Server.

The files are kept on the server and our 7 users access the server use a tcp/ip connection to access the databases. This enables the databases to be backed up nightly.

We have this annoying problem. Occasionally when we open the Databases they open as read-only. This doesn't happen all the time, and rebooting the client computer usually fixes it for the moment.

Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening all together...my boss is getting rather annoyed.

thanks!

You are opening the files via the OS and it file sharing. This is pretty much the norm that that kind of action.

You need to open the databases on a host machine, and the on the guests run Filemaker Pro, then select Open and click on the Hosts button. Then you will be able to open the database via Filemaker.
