From a COBOL program I an reading a random access file and occasionally try to read a locked record. What can I do to speed up the read so I can just present a popup screen that tells the user he is trying to access a locked record. Right now it takes 60 secs to time out from the read attempt before I can present this screen. BY then many users simply kill their session out of frustration. Any help would be appreciated.
