When the database is located on a Windows NT4-Server, the changes can be 
seen immediatly on the other 3 pcs. There is also a window popping up which 
announcing a sql-error but this seems to have no negative effect on the 
database. At a test-run under Win2k-Server the same error appears but also 
the changes can be seen immediatly.

So in general words spoken, is the database saved on a windows machine it 
works as it should, is it saved on samba share no changes can be seen until 
the pc the changes are made on closes the database.
