Row Lock reading SQL server records

Row Lock reading SQL server records

Row Lock reading SQL server records

How do I prevent Crystal queries from locking out normal user updates.  eg. I would like to read reference all of the records and not stop our normal updates to the table(s).

A dba here advises it takes a stored procedure with appropriate coding to read without locking.  Is there a way I can do it without using a stored procedure?

RE: Row Lock reading SQL server records

What your DBA is referring to is a dirty read, and I believ she/he is correct.

Technically, I don't think that the rows are being locked, I think that since it's a read only query, it might be locking pages.
