After this method has been called, no database transactions are committed until a
CommitTrans is issued. Alternatively, the session can be rolled back using the
Rollback method. If a transaction has already been started, repeated use of the
BeginTrans method causes an error.
Delete methods fail on a given row in a dynaset in a global transaction after you issue a
BeginTrans, be aware that locks remain on those rows on which you called the
Delete method. These locks persist until you call a
OraDatabaseobject has been enlisted with Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) and is part of a global MTS transaction, this method has no effect.
This example demonstrates the use of the
BeginTrans method to group a set of dynaset edits into a single transaction and uses the
Rollback method to cancel those changes. Copy this code into the definition section of a form. Then, press F5.
