I have not seen this behavior when using FROG. I use it to query
production files all the time and we have not had any issues....

RE: Run SQL Scripts and File Locks


I use an open source SQL Utility called FROG and it does the same thing.
Seems to lock the file even when you were just running a select.
Unfortunately, I can only confirm the behavior and don't have a solution
for you.

Subject: Run SQL Scripts and File Locks

Last weekend we upgraded to a Power 720 from a 520.
After using and exiting STRSQL for the first time in a session, a message
appears suggesting to give Run SQL Scripts a try, so I did.

The utility has its pros and cons, and I'm trying to use it so I can get
used to it. However today a job ran into an issue clearing a file because
apparently the SQL connection had the file in use. I had only been doing
SELECT statements in the SQL utility, so now I'm concerned. I showed a
couple of our power-users this tool, but if it's going to end up keeping a
file in use, I'm going to have to take it away.

Any thoughts on the matter?
