    Rajan,

    Thank you for your reply. If you delete a user from SM12 Lock Entry List and he has a lock on one of the tables would that cause a database corruption?

    Thanks again

      Hello Nishant,

      algotube's query: <i>"If you delete a user from SM12 Lock Entry List and he has a lock on one of the tables would that cause a database corruption? "</i>

      As per the query raised by algotube, he was talking in generic about users & not exclusively his own user id.

      Your question: <i>Where is it written in the link provided by you that it will make data inconsistant?</i>

      Click on the link from my previous post & Navigate to

      Managing Lock Entries Use ---> Deleting Lock Entries ---> Procedure

      Nishant, probably you have not faced any problems deleting entries from SM12 because you analyzed the lock situation before deleting it.

      I thought, I better caution algotube just incase he misinterprets your reply.

      Regards,

      Ammey Kesarkar

      NB: Nishant, no offence meant 😊 Thank you for taking it in good spirit

    Use Transaction SM12 to lock any entry in SAP system.

    I hope,this is what you are looking at.

    regards,nishant

    First thank you Nishant and Ammey for your replies. I am pretty new to SAP and just learning as I go.

    <i>As per the query raised by algotube, he was talking in generic about users & not exclusively his own user id.</i> Yes you are correct Ammey I was talking about all users and not my own user id.

    Thanks again
