It depends on the commitment level that is used.
If you do not want to see the modification you need CS (Cursor Stability)

Subject: SQL and commitment control

I feel like I know the answer to this but I'm missing something and can't
figure it out.

I have an RPGLE program that I adding commitment control. When I insert
records to my file but have not yet committed them, I can go to a second
session and using interactive SQL, I can see them. When I do a rollback in
the program, they disappear (as I would expect). The part that I'm drawing
a blank on is I thought there was a way to prevent the other sessions from
seeing the records until they were committed. Am I remembering incorrectly?
I've tried commit = *chg and *cs but neither hide the records from the other
sessions. What am I missing? And feel free to ask basic questions because
assuming this is possible, I am obviously missing something basic.
