Dear Collegues,

I have a problem with Multiterm 7. I have been working for a few hours now and have entered several terms into my Multiterm-Database working with Word 2003. About an hour ago, I got the message "Unknown Error" I tried again and forgot to enter the source term and then it worked. I have tried to enter the source term later using Multiterm and the message "term is blocked by another user" appeared. I have then tried to change the entry with Workbench closed, but it's always the same message. I cannot delete neither edit the entry.
There are other entries I can edit in Mulitterm, but this one no. I copied this entry and was then able to enter the source term as well (now I have two entries with the same target term - one mono- and the other one bilingual) Multiterm didn't ask if I wanted to merge...

I know that my "solution" was not very professional, but as I could edit the other entries, I didn't fear that there was really anything wrong with my database...

Now I got on working and wanted to make another entry and I keep getting "cannot add entry" (Multiterm kann den Eintrag nicht hinzufügen).
I haven't changed anything and I really wonder what this means. Has anyone an idea what I can do?

Thanks a lot for your help!
