Use of a Paradox table that resides on a network drive requires the
creation of network files (.NET and .LCK). If the network location does not
allow the user rights for creating these files, you would need to redirect
them to some location that does allow for this. One way to do this would be
by setting the NetFileDir and PrivateDir properties of the TSession
component to such a location.
