Hi there,

this page best explains it

Just dont forget to unlock it again!

Thanks for the help...one more question. This statement has me a bit confused =

Normally, you do not need to lock tables, because all single UPDATE statements are atomic; no other thread can interfere with any other currently executing SQL statement.

does this mean I should not worry about locking table, because it does it by itself?
