Sorry to disagree here Tushar, it can be done and I have done it also a couple of times. As long as the table is SHARED.

Actually it could also be done with excel files, when it is opened in a shared mode and is being used, it can be written over. However, excel will notify you once it happens, unlike VFP which will remain silent. Here is the message:
