I have a series of sqlqueries I wish to use all or none...problem is I keep getting this error message when I try to commit the transaction...
"Cannot create new connection because in manual or distributed transaction mode"

my connection object is declared in a module and then used throughout my code..

BTW:when I ask the conn for its mode it reports 0...

On Error GoTo rollback

  conn.BeginTrans
  conn.Execute (sqlstr_create_view1)
  conn.Execute (sqlstr_create_view2)
  Set resultset1 = conn.Execute(sqlstr_test)
  conn.Execute (sqlstr_drop_view1)
  conn.Execute (sqlstr_drop_view2)
 
  conn.CommitTrans
 
  GoTo skip_rollback
 
rollback:
  conn.RollbackTrans
  MsgBox Err.Description
skip_rollback:
  On Error Resume Next

I was told somewhere else to make sure my mssql server had MSDTC agent set to autostart in the sqlserver properties....this was the configuration I started with. Not sure about MTS.....suggestion?

just a curiosity:
are you trying to use DDL commands (such as create) inside a transaction? is it safe?

I remember that once before I tried to use DDL (Data Definition Language) commands inside transactions and I got errors back.
This commands includes:
create tables, foreign keys, indexes, etc,
To be honest, I'm not sure, but I feel like creating views is considered DDL commands.
Inside transaction only DML (data manipulation language)

just in case, try something like this


On Error GoTo rollback

 conn.Execute (sqlstr_create_view1)
 conn.Execute (sqlstr_create_view2)
 
 conn.BeginTrans

 Set resultset1 = conn.Execute(sqlstr_test)

 conn.CommitTrans
 
 conn.Execute (sqlstr_drop_view1)
 conn.Execute (sqlstr_drop_view2)


-------------------------------------
another situation in your code, did you realize that if you get an error you try to execute a commit after execute a rollback? Try comment the line 'On Error Resume Next'  and see what happen ....

feres
