hello experts, i am trying to run create table, insert records and delete records in a table made in Oracle.
but once i have delted few records thru this program, i am not able to get them back by running RollBack command at sql prompt of Oracle 8. i m using connection string to connect to oracle. other things are working fine. I am providing the code below. please help. i wish to get the records back by using Rollback.
the code follows :

Option Explicit
Dim con As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command
Dim sql As String, i As Integer

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Set con = New ADODB.Connection
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
    con.ConnectionString = "Provider=MSDAORA.1;User ID=scott/tiger;Persist Security Info=False"

    cmd.ActiveConnection = con
    i =1
End Sub

Private Sub cmdCreateTable_Click()
 cmd.ActiveConnection = con
cmd.CommandText="Create table tempp(rno number")
    Print "Table Created !"
End Sub

Private Sub cmdInsert_Click()
    sql = "Insert into tempp values(1)
    cmd.CommandText = sql

    sql = "Insert into tempp values(2)
    cmd.CommandText = sql

    sql = "Insert into tempp values(3)
    cmd.CommandText = sql
End Sub

Private Sub cmd_delete_Click()
' delete few records
cmd.CommandText = "Delete tempp where rno>1"
    Print "Records  Deleted !"
''''''''' Here is the Problem  ''''''''''
End Sub

The records deleted thru Vb cant be recalled even after rollback is issued from SQL.

ROLLBACK (and COMMIT) are related to the session, not to the user or even the database.
So IF you want to perform a ROLLBACK, you need to do this using the connection in the program (thus in the program itself), which is enabled only by starting a explicit TRANSACTION in the application itself.
The ROLLBACK will rollback all the insert/delete/update since the last BEGIN TRANSACTION, not only the last action.

To be able to do a rollback you first need to begin a transaction, like the example below

Private Sub cmd_delete_Click()
   On error goto ErrFix
   cmd.CommandText = "Delete tempp where rno>1"
   Print "Records  Deleted !"
   Exit sub
   Print "Transactions Rolled back !"
End Sub
