No . I am not using any triggers to alter other tables. Also I want to ask
something
about pessimistik Lock. What happens to the dummy lock , if the person who
locked the table
abnormally closes the application or somehow his transaction fails. Will I
have to write some maintenance routines ?

In earlier rows of mesages I found your answer to Marco about using Flag
Field for locking purposes.
I was using that system very often in dos programs written with clipper.
But this time I want to use capabilities of C/S architecture.
