I am using ODBC to interface with MS-Access.  My application manage to execute the SQL rollback command but it does not rollback the transaction.

Wherelse, I manage to rollback transaction from ORACLE which is using native mode.

Could it be something that I have to set in ODBC setup?

In order to rollback a transaction you need the turn off the AutoCommit option for the connection you are using. You do this by the following Odbc API call:

SQLINTEGER iValue = SQL_AUTOCOMMIT_OFF;
SQLSetConnectAttr(hDbc, SQL_ATTR_AUTOCOMMIT, (void*) Value, NULL);
