# Description

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

The file must first be opened with the OPEN statement. If a file variable is specified in the OPEN statement, it may then be used in the DELETEU statement. A comma must be placed 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.

See also: OPEN statement (for a description of the default file).
