An UPDATE operation sets a WRITE lock for the table, partitions, or row being updated. For a nonconcurrent isolated update on load isolated table, the update operation sets an EXCLUSIVE lock.

The lock set for SELECT subquery operations depends on the isolation level for the session, the setting of the AccessLockForUncomRead DBS Control field, and whether the subquery is embedded within a SELECT operation or within an UPDATE request.
