Hi! In my instructions, I have �the program must allow the user to specify the location of the database, and it must also accept an indication that a local database is to be used, in which case, the networking must be bypassed entirely.� In case of Local mode, client must have option to provide location database (db.db) path. I want to confirm that this not the case in n/w mode. In n/w mode server will decide the location of database. Thanks and regards, Bhuvan.
