Stored procedure rollback

Hey everyone,

I have a set of stored procedures that call each other to perform a
set of tasks. I have decided to do this for database performance
reasons rather than doing it from a ColdFusion page (and to prevent
timeouts, etc.)

These stored procedures run every night and handle scheduled tasks in
a complex system.

An example of this would be:
sp_ExecuteSched uledTasks @ForDate
(calls) sp_UpdateEmploy eeSalary @EmployeeID, @NewSalary,
(then calls) sp_UpdateEmploy eeCoverage @EmployeeID,
@PlanEnrollment Year
(calls) sp_UpdateEmploy eeBenefitCovera geandCosts @EmployeeID,
@PlanEnrollment Year

This is a quickly drafted example of the complexity of this stored
proc routine.

The problem I have is that each time an error occurs in this stored
proc routine, I would like to save it to a table in the database for
future analysis and rectification the following day. The reason this
does not happen is because of the nested transactions. If the
transaction is going to fail, it also rolls back transactions within
itself (it's children transactions).

I've put together a very basic set of SQL statements below in order to
test and try to find a solution to my problem but have not yet

/*************** ***********/
/* SQL Example Start */
/*************** ***********/

BEGIN TRAN tran_with_error

INSERT INTO tblThisCausesAn Error(error) VALUES('This causes an error')

BEGIN TRAN save_error_mess age
INSERT INTO tblErrorLog(mes sage) VALUES ('This reports an error')

COMMIT TRAN save_error_mess age
/* SAVE TRAN save_error_mess age */

/* At this point an error has occured, rollback the transaction */
ROLLBACK TRAN tran_with_error

/*************** ***********/
/* SQL Example End */
/*************** ***********/

I have tried committing/saving the transaction, I have tried
disallowing delete access to the tblErrorLog table to public and the
SQL user that executes the process, I have even tried a delete trigger
that disallows any deletion but I realize that transactions are
handled differently and that a rollback is not considered a deletion.

Any ideas?

In SQL Server 2000, I've got a rather lengthy stored procedure, which creates a lot of temporary tables as it processes down through a few sets of data.

It runs through the procedure in milliseconds but doesn't seem to ever actually start it. If I change the calling code in the ade VBA to refer to...

If a java applicaiton using the type 4 driver calls a DB2 stored procedure, does the stored procedure need to do its own commit when updates are completed? If the stored procedure does a commit or rollback, does that affect the UOW for any SQL that was directly issued by the java program before calling the stored procedure?

Hi, I have a stored procedure that I want to execute and then wait in a loop showing a timer whilst it completes and then carry on once I get notification that it has completed.

Another reason for doing it like this is that I also have had a problem in the past where the SP takes longer than the...
