I can’t get Transactions to work with a recordset created with the Form.RecordsetClone (i.e. updates are made but the .Rollback method does not.  Is it possible to use Transactions on recordsets created with the .RecordsetClone, or is something wrong with my code?
(sample code follows)

Sub ModuleName()
Dim ws As Workspace  
Dim rs As Recordset
Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
Set rs = Forms!FormName.RecordsetClone
ws.BeginTrans
While Not rs.EOF
    rs.Edit
    rs!FieldName=SomeValue
    rs.Update
    rs.MoveNext
Wend
If SomeTest = True Then
    ws.CommitTrans
  Else
    ws.Rollback
End if
End Sub

I'm using Access 2000 and in the helpfile they give a sample for Commit/Rollback, but only for a connection object.

In the sample they create a new adodb.recordset to perform the updates on and conditionally commit or rollback.

Do you have Access 2000 ?
Then check upon the connection object's methods (commit/rollback) for the sample.

Does the form have a subform?  If so, then this behavior is by design and you will need to use more explicit declarations for your recordsets.  See article at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q131/5/35.asp?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0

Just re-read the question. And are wondering why you are performing a commit/rollback on a RecordsetClone.
It is a copy of a recordset and when you are finished and doesn't want the updates you just "drop-it" and take a new set by specifying set rs = ..recordsetclone again.
When you are concerned that somebody has changed something in the meantime you could use two clone sets: set rs1 to recordsetclone and rs2 = rs1. The instead of a rollback you use rs1 = rs2?!

Basically a commit and rollback is used to secure multiple updates on "real" table(s) and to correct the updates when not every individual update was successfull.
