Hi -
I want to add something to what John states because it has tripped me up 
in the past.  The documentation for LOCK TABLE states:
"  The table lock lasts until the end of the current transaction.  "

This means it is important to set AUTOCOMMIT OFF so the lock is not 
released when the LOCK TABLE statement completes.
