disable locking with SM30


my customer is not amused that SM30 locks a whole table not selected records. We have a couple of user tables with maintenance views. For the departments (of this small company) it is dificult to maintain their data if another department has data in the same table although completely different records.

I have seen a lecturer using a report to disable and reenable locking for SM30/SM31 10 years ago.

Any Idea?



P.S. I know that it is dangerous to disable locking, but: Why does SM30 not provide single-record-locking (or even 'optimistic locks').

And the customer wants it.

    I suspect it will lock single records if you maintain the table using the conditions option.
