If you want to display data from a record, yet you do not want the record to be locked, here are two simple ways to do it:
- call the READ ONLY command for that record's table. In this case, keep in mind that the table will be in read only more for that process until the command READ WRITE is called.

- use the DISPLAY RECORD command.

- use the DISPLAY SELECTION command.
