The image cncpt103.gif shows a serializeable transaction consisting of a SELECT query that is repeated, followed by an UPDATE query. The second SELECT query sees the same data as the first, even though between the two SELECT queries someone else has changed the data. The UPDATE query fails if attempting to update a row changed and committed by another transaction since this transaction began. The "Cannot Serialize Access" error causes the transaction to roll back to the beginning and retry.
