DFU won't do it.  WRKDBF won't do it.  The only way I know how is to use an
RPG or Cobol program...  Perhaps there is a maintenance program for the file
you're working on that will pull up and lock the record?

And remember that WAITFILE & WAITRCD parameters of command CHGPF states how
much time OS/400 will wait before sending "lock record" message to your
program.

Oggetto: Forcing a record lock


Hi All,

I need to force a record lock on a particular record in order to simulate 
a problem.  I'm trying to fix an issue where a program abends because a 
record is locked.  However, in our system, the program does not abend and 
the file that is supposedly locked has a shared lock.  I need to be able 
to lock the record for a significant amount of time (about 60 seconds) in 
order to cause the abend.  What are the different ways I can do this?


Thanks,
Regina Rafols
