Lock record in the table

Lock record in the table


How can I lock record in the table in postgres. Means another person not even select the row which I m going to update the row in the table. I don't want to lock table.


RE: Lock record in the table


Thanks for quick reply.

If I do explicit locking even another user can select the record but will not update. I want another user should not select the particular record which I have lock for update.

Please tell me how to do this.


RE: Lock record in the table


That is not possible exactly as you wish. "Row-level locks do not affect data querying". So you have to use access exclusive locking mode.
