DBASE IV 1.5 read-only file error! 
Author Message
 DBASE IV 1.5 read-only file error!

        I am having a mega-problem - I have written a dbaseIV 1.5 program to
edit a queried record (one searched for on a key and found).  I am using the
REPLACE command on all of the fields in the record.  I am receiving a "Cannot
write to read only file" error.  I have tried to remedy the problem with the
following to no avail:

                        o SET LOCK off
                        o UNLOCK all
                        o examine MS-DOS file attribute
                                (is not read-only/system file)

        Does anyone know what I am missing (besides the answer)?  I need help
immediately (before Monday, preferrably tonite).

                                        - Tim
