Use the DELETEU statement to delete a record without releasing the update record lock set by a previous READU statement.

Use the OPEN statement to open a file. If specifying a file variable in the OPEN statement, use it in the DELETEU statement. You must place a comma between the file variable and the record ID expression.

If specifying no file variable in the DELETEU statement, the statement applies to the default file.
