How to Remove locked entries in SAP ( SM12) )

In a system when ever a user performs any update on any table for that period of time a lock on that particular field of that table is created so that no other user can update that table as user one is doing update on that table.
And Suppose during the update user session get terminated due to some error then this lock entry remains on that field. 
SM12 : Remove locked entries [TCODE]
I am sure many of you have faced this problem:

This occurs when the report/program is locked by the actions of certain user. One can surely ask the user to come out from that program or revoke the locked entries created.

To remove the lock entries , one must use Tcode SM12.

Just specify the username if you want to see all locked entries of a particular user and execute. All the lock entries corresponding to the particular user is displayed. 


Now you can delete any lock entry created.
