I would say that the manual describes what the Locks do, but doesn't really give examples of *why* you would use, for example a file lock versus a record lock. Not exactly. Not like the "Joe is creating an invoice, and Carol wants to update a customer... " type example.

Has anyone ever put that specific material into some kind of training odule? An article in Spectrum? Infocus? A conference session?
