When adding new customers, we have several workstations doing this job,
a problem arises when the work load is high. And that is when several
additions are attempted at the same time, sometimes the "ADD" entry for
a user does not appear in the extends file. I think that this is because
the file is being opened by several people at the same time (file
locking problem). I know that this can be solved by your modifying
Emerald to lock the file before editing it. But for now, do you have an
immediate solution for this problem?

Did anyone out there face the same problem? And how did you solve it?
