Find if table is open by another user

Find if table is open by another user

Hello everybody

I wan to Find if a certain table is open by another user without trying to open or access that table.

Best Regards


RE: Find if table is open by another user


Without trying to open or access the table, it is difficult to find if it is use. But the below code will work to find out if some other user has the file already open.


OPEN(<Table>, 12H)
IF ERRORCODE() = 05 ! Access Denied
   !open by another user
   !some other error
   !open with exclusive access
