are you 100% certain that the Win7 machine is connected to the same file? No backups floating around that could be opened by mistake? Check out the file references in the files.
Thanks. I had not checked the file references.
I have now. There was one legacy (ghost-ish) reference which did show a reference to a file which I use from time to time to import a script.
But the file name table name has nothing like it in the active solution. And path to a external hard drive it used make it hard to believe that the data got misdirected to there. (but I'm open to be convinced)
That said, I do have files which I could navigate to on my local network which share names but none that the users could get to.
However, I am 100% certain that none of the user computers would have any such old backup files etc. The Client's computer running FMS actually does have the normal BackUp folder and I just noticed that a folder for which I stage FTP (Fetch) files in does in fact have a zipped copy of the solution. I guess I don't know if Win 7 deposits any sort of temp file when one does a send to Zip Archive, etc.
Are you suggesting that a hosted file on FMS can still find and target a same named file without an affirmative action on my part ?
Thanks for taking an interest. My worry is that I can't replicate the problem on demand. There have been lots of sessions wherein a user and I will be logged in simultaneously as they get their sea-legs on the biz logic. I just happened to catch this and the tabels in question are Invoices and payments.
AS a follow up, I have been trying to replicate my issue of Win 7 clients not seeing data changes as they happen.
While I have not seen the exact same fault, I have seen some major delays on the W7 machines which I don't see on the XP or Mac computers.
I can fill a room with what I don't know about Win 7. However, I'm begining to suspect that when there is a lag in the completion of a process (like the first time a field is searched on) the OS seems a hike to a dream state. I haven't yet found any literature to explain any differences between the XP and W7 systems in this regard.
Are a lot of folks using Win 7 with no issues ?
