Too many open tables

Hi,

i have an aplication that must run on many stations using the same database
(paradox tables).

when an aplication inserts data into a table (in a loop,around 500 records)
and
another application try to make a SELECT on this table, the second
application raises an exception "Too many open tables: tablename.db".

when only one application is started averything works ok.

does anybody know how can i solve this problem?
