Clearing physical member file records

If you are trying to clear a physical member file, but get a message that says: FILE *** in LIBRARY *** is in use, what do you do? Scott Ingvaldson provides a quick fix.

I'm trying to clear record one of the physical member files. i used the commands CLRPFM but i got the message: FILE *** in LIBRARY *** is in use. How should I go about to check who is using or unlock the file so I can clear the record?

End the job, then use WRKOBJLCK again to verify that there are no locks for the specified object.
