DBFNTX/1024 Append lock failed
Explanation: A new record could not be appended because a lock
could not be obtained for the new record.
Action: For a shared work area, the APPEND BLANK command
automatically obtains a record lock for the newly appended record. If
the record cannot be locked, the APPEND fails. This generally occurs
because another process has obtained a file lock on the database (.dbf)
file. Change the program to handle the lock contention.
Note: The default CA-Clipper error handler (Errorsys.prg) handles
this error by setting the global NETERR() status to true (.T.) and
resuming execution. Thus, the error only causes an error message or
alert when a custom error handler is used. For an example of how to
handle this error condition, refer to Errorsys.prg.
