Temporary updating

A user wants a private copy of a table to update temporarily, without storing it. The user must change the name of the table (CN command) to some unique name, perhaps based upon the UserID or Terminal ID.

If the Change Name is successful, the user has his own exclusive copy of the table. For more details see Change Name (CN).

tableBASE will not allow this for a table which is already open for write by another user with a different LOCK-LATCH password, and will issue an error code (0074). Should this error occur, the user must decide whether to abort or to wait and try again.
