AutoCommit Property

Applies To

OraDatabase Object


Returns or sets the AutoCommit property of the OraDatabase object.


autocommit = OraDatabase.AutoCommit
OraDatabase.AutoCommit = [ True | False 

Data Type



If the AutoCommit property is set to True, all the data operations that modify data in the database are automatically committed after the statement is executed.

If the AutoCommit property is set to False, you need to use the OraDatabase transaction methods (BeginTrans, CommitTrans, and Rollback) or SQL statements to control transactions.


The following example shows how to control transactions with SQL statements after setting the AutoCommit property to False.

Dim session As OraSession 
Dim MyDb As OraDatabase 
Set OraSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession") 
Set MyDb = OraSession.OpenDatabase("ExampleDb", "scott/tiger", 0) 
MyDb.AutoCommit = False 
MyDb.ExecuteSQL ("update emp set sal = 100000" & _ 
                  "where ename = 'JOHN SMITH' ") 
MyDb.ExecuteSQL ("commit")
