Hi,
I'm in a situation with two servers (SQL Server 7 ) in the same domain. I configured both servers as linked servers. I also run MSDTC on both servers. I have a trigger on the table in one DB which should update a table in the other DB on the other server. The trigger looks as follows :
CREATE TRIGGER UPDATE_SPECIE ON dbo.tbl_specie
FOR  UPDATE
AS
BEGIN
           UPDATE  vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species
           SET sp_priority=B.sp_prior, sp_niv1=B.sp_grpcode, sp_niv2=B.sp_code,
                   sp_box_content=B.sp_qubox, sp_min_amount_startprice=B.sp_minkg,
                   sp_tara=B.sp_tara, sp_percent_liquid=B.sp_nat, sp_tolerance=B.sp_tol,
                        sp_shape=B.sp_shape, sp_size=B.sp_size
           FROM vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species as c, tbl_specie AS B   WHERE c.sp_code=B.sp_code
END

When I try to update the table I receive the following error message :
OLE/DB Provider returmed message : Only one transaction can be active on this session.
Could not start a transaction for oledb provider 'SQLOLEDB'.

I looked at the settings but I don't seem to have any way that I can adjust a setting. What is going wrong? Do I need to specify that it is a distributed transaction. I tried it and replaced the begin by begin distributed transaction and the end by commit transaction but this didn't work either. I need to strat this project up tomorrow so all suggestions are welcome.

I'd recommend using the logical 'inserted' table:

CREATE TRIGGER UPDATE_SPECIE ON dbo.tbl_specie
FOR  UPDATE
AS
BEGIN
           UPDATE  vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species
           SET sp_priority=B.sp_prior, sp_niv1=B.sp_grpcode, sp_niv2=B.sp_code,
                  sp_box_content=B.sp_qubox, sp_min_amount_startprice=B.sp_minkg,
                   sp_tara=B.sp_tara, sp_percent_liquid=B.sp_nat, sp_tolerance=B.sp_tol,
                   sp_shape=B.sp_shape, sp_size=B.sp_size
           FROM inserted AS B
   WHERE vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species.sp_code IN (Select sp_code from inserted)

END

This will only update those that changed, and will not involve the original table at all, thus (hopefully) avoiding the problem with the transaction conflict.

You' re right but this isn't a solution for our problem. Further tests hqve shown that the OLEDB transaction error isn't significant. As a matter a fact even zhen you have a syntax error in a trigger it gives the same error.

We have done some tests and found the following solution:
Jo just put a COMMIT at the beginning of your trigger
CREATE TRIGGER UPDATE_SPECIE ON dbo.tbl_specie
FOR  UPDATE
AS
BEGIN
COMMIT
           UPDATE  vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species
           SET sp_priority=B.sp_prior, sp_niv1=B.sp_grpcode, sp_niv2=B.sp_code,
                  sp_box_content=B.sp_qubox, sp_min_amount_startprice=B.sp_minkg,
                   sp_tara=B.sp_tara, sp_percent_liquid=B.sp_nat, sp_tolerance=B.sp_tol,
                   sp_shape=B.sp_shape, sp_size=B.sp_size
           FROM inserted AS B
   WHERE vauveil.urk2000.dbo.tbl_species.sp_code IN (Select sp_code from inserted)

END
