Hahaha . that would be nice Tim.  If I had a penny for every time .


I'm looking at the link you provided and it looks promising.  Looks like a
very handy tool for sure.  I may even use it for more than just DP.


Thank you.

What about instituting a mandatory fine for anyone who fails to exit the
database at the end of the day. Shouldn't take more than once or twice for
them to get the point. :)

Another option would be to install an additional utility on each workstation
that uses the database. At a specific time each day it would force a DP

AutoIt is free and is mighty handy for writing little helper utilities like

Hello Peter,


Thank you for the reply.  Interesting that you use it for transport
management. I use it for the same; inventory and shipping management.


Anyway, I was hoping I could disconnect the user solely from the DP
application or database but not from the server.


Currently I have to remote log-in to the suspect station and properly log it
out.  Unfortunately sometimes there are multiple suspects.






PS:  please know that I feel bad that NL is not in this cup.  Just doesn't
seem right without them and Italy.

Hi Ed,


It happens to me quit often with approx 40 users working every day in our
transport management application.

We work on a window server with terminal servers


I work as follow:

-          Remove all *.tmp files (3 per user)

-          Some of them remain because of incorrect log-out

-          I get the names of those users from the files attributes

-          Next step is to log out those users from the server

-          Final step to remove the remaining *.tmp files

I back up my DP database regularly at off hours when it is supposed to be
inactive.  However, there are times when it fails because a user forgot to
log-out of the database.

I was wondering if there is a way to forcibly eject users from the database.
