How can i check if a SPDS table is used by another process?

[ Edited ]

Hy Sas Community.

I need a macro that check if a table is in use by another process.

The lock/unlock statement is not supported by SPDS.

To be more procise, i need before append some rows in a table to check if that table is not locked(held) by another process.

I tried with lock/unlock macros but they are not supported by SPDS Server.

Thanks

If you only need to append rows, you are not needing to assure integrity on the current rows.

If this is the case, use the Dynamic Locking feature, and no need to check for available locks etc.
