What should I do if one of my update fails?

I'm setting up a site that prompts a user for information
about people and stores the results in a Access database.
This database is then used to create accounts on the

To store the user data I need to run three separate INSERT
queries into an Access 2000 database.

What I'd like to know is, should one of these updates
fail. What should I do? Especially if its the second or
third update! At the moment all I'm doing is watching to
see if there is an error in each update function. If
there is one, then it abandons the whole thing and
redirects to an error page.

Should I be trying to backout of any previous updates, or
trying the broken function... or something else? What is
the correct course of action in such circumstances?

use transactions - ADO supports them with ease. if one fails, the rest
will be rolled back, and they're also well documented.

ADO can do that! Excellent, I wasn't aware of this feature. I'll
crack open my ASP book tomorrow and look it up, I'm sure it has a
section on ADO.

Thanks very much!

I have a table with columns (product_id,related_product_id,related_counter) If product A is related to product B then a record should be created, if the record already exists then the related_counter should be incremented. This is very easy to do with MySQL using INSERT... ON DUPLICATE KEY. Standard or not, it is very usefull.
