Your answer is still not specific enough...

- Do you have programs that attempt to exclusively allocate a given file in
order to process it?

- Are there situations where program A has retrieved a record for update and
has the record locked, but program B is attempting to retrieve the same
record for update and failing?

I'm assuming that this is all batch processing. Please correct me if my
assumption is wrong.
