Dear Sir,
  The SQL statement:
     SELECT TITLE, DESC
      FROM BAEXP_TITLE
        WITH (UPDLOCK, ROWLOCK, NOWAIT)
      WHERE COMPANY = 'ABC' AND TITLE = 'XYZ'

  Questions:
  1. Does (UPDLOCK ROWLOCK NOWAIT) without comma also work ?
  2. What is the diffrence between (UPDLOCK, ROWLOCK) and (UPDLOCK, ROWLOCK, NOWAIT) ?
  3. Does SQL Server 2000 support multiple transactions ? If so, any settings need to be done first ?

Thanks for you help!

2, The first one also include nowait hint along with UPDLOCk and ROWLOCK

I mean can I start two transactions with different TransactionID at the same time?
A nested transactions looks like :
  START TRANS 1
    DO PROCESS1
    START TRANS 2
      DO PROCESS2
    IF PROCESS2 COMPLETED THEN
      COMMIT TRANS 2
    ELSE
      ROLLBACK TRANS 2
  IF PROCESS1 AND PROCESS2 COMPLETED THEN
    COMMIT TRANS 1
  ELSE
    ROLLBACK TRANS 1

>>1,  No for each hint you have to provide comman in between
But there was no error occured when executed the statement without comma...That confused me!
So, (UPDLOCK, ROWLOCK, NOWAIT) is the correct one!

No for such transactions it will be in a serial.
