The COMMIT command executes a SQL
COMMIT statement. When you want changes that you have made in a workspace to be committed when you execute the COMMIT command, then you must first update the workspace using an UPDATE statement. UPDATE moves changes from a temporary work area to the database table in which the workspace is stored. Changes that have not been moved to the table are not committed. When you do not use UPDATE and COMMIT statements, changes made to an analytic workspace during your session are discarded when you end your Oracle session.
When you execute a SQL
COMMIT statement in your database session, all changes made in your session (including all updated changes in workspaces that you have attached with read/write access) are committed. All committed changes are visible to other users who subsequently attach the workspace. However, another user's UPDATE and COMMIT statements do not affect your view of an already attached workspace.
Note:Many users execute DML statements using SQL*Plus® or OLAP Worksheet. Both of these tools automatically execute a COMMIT statement when you end your session
