    I'm writing an app that allows several computers to add new orders to the database. To avoid any conflicts, I want to make sure that when one system is adding a new list of orders, no others can interrupt and will have to wait for the first one to finish up. I understand that the most straightforward way for it is to use the SQL command "LOCK TABLE mytable WRITE;" and once finished: "UNLOCK TABLES;"

    I'm using mySql and InnoDB.
    What I want to know is that will these commands work when passed as a query to jSQL? In other words, can I use the following code:
    "LOCK TABLE mytable WRITE")
    'Do both reading and writing operations on the database....
        sql1.ExecQuery("UNLOCK TABLES")
    If that works, yaaay! If it doesn't, how else can I do it conveniently?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    You should use ExecNonQuery for such commands. I expect it to work.
