IT Jungle: Automatically Answering Unable to Allocate Record Messages

IT Jungle just published my latest tip on automatically answering record lock messages.
Here’s the question I answered in this tip:

We have a persistent problem with application jobs waiting on record locks with an RNQ1218 (unable to allocate a record in file &7) message. The record is only temporarily locked because by the time my help desk looks at it, the lock is gone and the program resumes after answering the message with an ‘R’ (Retry). Any ideas what we can do so we’re not constantly answering record lock messages?
