Table Locking in SQL Server

Is there any way to specify the type of locking in SQL Server, Record Lock or Table Lock.

Delphi by default uses Table Locking which is causing problems as multiple users are using my application.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Assuming Microsoft, as of SQL*Server 6.5, you have no options here.  SQL*Server only supports page level locking.

I only know Sybase as of a year ago and it also supported page level.  However, a co-worker believes Sybase now supports row-level.  I can't confirm that.
