Will holding a lock (file and maybe record) cause a problem? Is the program buffering any file data that could be held until file close? The file does get closed at job end.

Subject: Creating an SQL UDF on a procedure
We have a procedure that leaves the files open until the procedure is called one final time with an extra parameter to close the files
For example, within an RPG program
Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber);
And then at the end of the RPG program
Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber: Closefiles);
We now need to create a function on this procedure. I don't have a problem creating the function. My concern is that the "final" call - namely Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber: Closefiles); - will NOT be done (or is there a way to do it).
My questions to the panel are - is this a cause for concern?
Will this be a problem at some time?
