Subj:   Re: How to release locks from a table.

  In Queryman (or BTEQ) -- RELEASE MLOAD MYDATABASE.MYTABLE; If you get an error such as "unable to release multiload..." try RELEASE MLOAD MYDATABASE.MYTABLE IN APPLY;  

Releasing a multiload job IN APPLY can be a dangerous thing - you would have no way of knowing how many rows were applied, and mload is not using the transient journal (no rollback). Indices are also not kept in synch w/ the base table during the apply phase. It is a far better option to restart the mload if it has failed and let it clean itself up. If you cancel IN APPLY be prepared to restore the table from backup.
