Transactional Processing

John Mark Osborne


Record locking in a multi-user scenario is easy to control on a single record. Just use the Open Record/Request script step and test for an error 301. If the error occurs, stop the script and present a dialog telling the user they can't run that script right now. If no error occurs, the current user now has control of the record and it can be freely modified by a script. However, if your script loops through records or uses the Replace Field Contents script step, the difficulty controlling record locking is on a whole 'nother level. In this article, I'll discuss how to get around record locking when multiple records need to be modified with a script, using an example of inventory leveling.
