Hello All,

I have created a series of queries in an Access DB that I need to execute on a daily basis to propagate data from other DBs into this Access DB. I wrote a Visual Basic program to do that. I uses ODBC to launch queries in the Access DB successfully. However, I want to execute a series of queries in a transaction. Can anyone give me a hint on whether this can be accomplished using the ODBC interface? And how?

Code to execute the SQL looks like this:

  sSQL = "exec [Identify New Projects (from Advantage)]"
  nRetCode = SQLExecDirect(Connection(1).hstmt, sSQL, Len(sSQL))
  If nRetCode <> SQL_SUCCESS Then GoTo roExit

How would I execute multiple statements like this and wrap this in a transaction and rollback if any fail?

Thanks for any help.
