Keep in mind that locked data sets are just that -- locked to prevent
any changes by the user. The data set can be viewed in any way that
you can view an unlocked data set, but the data cannot be changed,
edited, added, or deleted. The only way to change data in a locked
data set is through the refresh process -- or, of course, unlocking
the data set.

Hope this helps -
