Deleting a logical file

How can I delete a logical file that is related to three physical files?
Logical files can be deleted as long as they are not locked. It does not matter how many physicals they are based on. If you can't delete a logical file, use WRKOBJLCK to see what is locking the file.

It is physical files that cannot be deleted if logical files exist over them. You always have to delete logical files first, and then you can delete the based-on physicals.
