not sure if your plan is the best approach -- you might not last too long as a new dba if you prevent users from selecting or updating data they just entered

however, if you feel there's a legitimate case for making a table 'insert-only' (kind of like one of those black hole neutron star thingies) you would have to do it via table privileges, not via the lock statement

i would suggest that you elaborate on the problem that you are trying to solve so that posters can suggest alternative approaches to accomplishing your goals
