The simple answer - I don't think you can.

But why would you want to?

If you want a lock so that you can update the area then simply unlock it via an out operation after the update or issue an unlock if not updating.

If for some reason this is not viable perhaps explain what you are trying to do and we can perhaps suggest an alternative solution.

I have a RPGLE Free form definition of the following *DTAARA.

DCL-DS userdft DTAARA(*AUTO:*USRCTL:'WEB/default');
Dftuser char(10);

First line in the program is:

in userdft;

an *EXCLRD lock is used and locking out other jobs. How can I get this to be a shared Read?
