Subject:Re: lockRecord() - doesn't

Try to qlocate the record, or move to the record you want, then try

var erc logical endvar
erc= true
if tcu.edit() then
    if tcu.lockrecord() then
       erc = false
       do whatever
if erc then
    display error

What happens?

open() and edit() doesn't throw an error unless in a try block.
