Btrieve error 85 (file in use)

The application tried to either open a file, access a record in a transaction, or lock a record while another application was accessing the file within a transaction. If this condition occurs, your application should apply either of the following methods: - Retry the operation until it is successful. Under light to moderate network use, this may be the simplest and quickest solution. - Use wait locks (+100) instead of no-wait locks. The application which encounters the locked header page will experience a momentary delay until the lock on the header page is released. This error can also occur if you try to access the same file via requester and DOS version of Btrieve or if someone has opened the file via OS file open function.
