  • Manage your Solution
  • Center formulas


During the operation of Manage Your Solution, an internal database lock was created, when the customizing tables would be changed.
The purpose of this lock is to avoid the concurrent update on the tables.

The lock would be released, if the change has been made in the tables.


  1. Make sure that there is no database lock in the system;
  2. Repeat the operation again and it should work.
