Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > General Parameters > [General]LockRetry


The number of times to retry an operation that does not succeed because a file is locked. Some networks do not unlock files as quickly as you would expect, causing the error message "dBASE record locked by another user" to display frequently. Note that if you set this parameter to a high value, you could reduce performance. The period between retries is determined by the [General]LockDelay parameter.

Allowable Values: 0 to 20

Default Value: 3
