You can't without a restore.  If you didn't explicitly start a transaction, you can't roll it back.

You'll have to do a point in time restore of the database from the time before you made the slip.

That is assuming you used implicit transactions and didn't explicitly code a BEGIN TRANSACTION without an ending COMMIT TRANSACTION....

You have to have a backup to do a point in time restore.  Not to mention that the database recovery mode has to be set to full.

There are also a couple of tools that will let your "selectively" rollback transaction from the logfile--you just have to buy them.  Logexplorer is one http://www.lumigent.com and netiq also has a product http://www.netiq.com


So, no backup, no restore....

What do you mean?  Your question was answered....You did exactly what I said in my first post--restore...I also listed a tool that would allow you to do a selective restore from the transaction log....
