temporary locking of tables


As I understand it when you open a file (fp7) all the tables in it are opened and you can access each using an attached layout. I also understand that you can change fields on a layout only if contained in the main table not in related ones.

My question is : one of the tables (say table 1) contains parameters and I do not want any body to be able to change its contents while another is working with a different layout which is used to compile information for a report and if table 1 changes during the process the report will produce erroneous results).

How do I lock table 1 ? I could not find this any where in the documentations.
