On a huge database, one user is executing update statement.
This process is blocking the other prcesses like select on the same table.

How to handle the situation..

Thanks in advance.

You can release the other processes by killing the blocking one - it will roll back any changes that are in progress.
It's up to you to decide whether that will cause problems.

Add this sp to master and run it regularly - it will show you running processes and commands and blocking commands.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
