hi  Lowfatspread

 Is there any chances that we can rollack our transaction from a particular point(say in anotherwords we have deleted records in a comitted transaction and in the next transaction we wants to retrive it. Is there any way to apply this ?

For Example In Visual FoxPro u can delete records and recall it until u are apply the pack command. Is there any privilege like that in SQL Server

edwardsearch, since Visual FoxPro stores its data in a flat file format, it would be ineffecient to rewrite the whole file every time you delete a record.  So it just marks the record as deleted until you pack it.  SQL Server, OTOH, very effeciently uses b-tree index pages (or heaps on tablea with no clustered indexes) and reclaims the space for re-use as soon as the record is deleted.

If you don't have one already, it's time to work on your backup procedures and disaster recovery plan.


BTW, That's cool, arbert.  I never thought about that.  I hope I can whip that one out sometime to the oohs and ahs of management types.

It happened to be on the top of my mind because I just had to do it for a user the other day :)  Something you really don't think about too much until your butt's on the line :)
