I'm trying to create an EGL page that allows users to modify batch requests and calls the appropriate COBOL batch program.

I have created/tested the page that loads/modifies the user's request lines. I added a submit button to call the program and am running into an issue.

First, when a request is submitted the request lines get written to an intermediate file to ensure the report is run with the requests at submission time.
Then the batch program reads the intermediate file and once the requests are loaded into the program, the records from the intermediate file are deleted. My problem lies here.

When I execute the EGL 'add' statement to create the intermediate records, a lock is created and the batch program cannot access those records [access is I-O] because of the lock.

How do I get rid of this lock once all of my records are added to the file?
