You can ZAP a table any time it is open in a workarea.  Exclusive use is
not required. This marks all records in the table as deleted.  RECALL
will reinstate records, selectively if necessary, marked as deleted also
without the need for exclusive use.

PACK will physically remove deleted records from a table permanently.
For this dBASE requires exclusive use of the table.
