I wouldn't be surprised if TRUNCATE TABLE encountered the same lock issues
as CLRPFM.

Hello Kerwin,

I have a program (RPGLE) that has this code (the file has a lock on it
otherwise we would use CLRPFM or some other method).
[?]
Exec SQL Set option Commit=*None
Exec SQL Delete From FileA;

I?d recommend to try the TRUNCATE TABLE command, if already available in
your IBM i's SQL version. I don?t know if this will work with the lock you
mentioned, though.

:wq! PoC
