Weird Problem


I'm running FMP Adv 11.03 on a PMac G5 and am attempting to create a runtime.  I've done this in the past with no probs but this time it's throwing up an odd problem.  I should add that User, everyone and (unknown) have read/write access permissions, whilst FMP is installed in the main admin account although I'm running in a user account.

Part way through the process I get a msg, 'file is locked or in use'.  AFAICT neither applies, but the process continues and a runtime is duly created.  

I then open the runtime on the same machine to check, but the file now contains some 1400 records compared to the 1750 or so in the original.

I'm baffled so has anyone any idea what might be happening?  The only thing I can think of is something to do with permissions, since there has been some data entry on another machine and I suspect that the new records started from around the 1400 mark.  That machine was a Mac and also ran FMP 11.02 (not advanced).
