Not quite. The example only calls one stored procedure. Look at my question again.

I have some code in C# to do this if you want to take it and convert it into VB.NET. I haven't out up any code as yet as I'm not sure if C# is any use to you.

Put simply you have to do the following:

This is performed in one method to setup the connection and transaction

// Create the connection.
// open the connection.
// Set the beginning of the transaction.

This is performed in another method so that you can call as many SP's as you want.
// Tell the command object the name of the SP to run.
// Tell the command object that it is part of a transaction.
// Tell the command object that it is going to run a SP.
// Execute the Query

Each time you call the second method above you must clear any parameters that you added for the call to the previous SP.

Then there is another method which I use to either commit the transaction or rollback.

I just have a simgle class which performs all of these operation for me. It's just a DAL.

       Dim myTrans As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlTransaction
        Dim myConn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("connection string")
            myTrans = myConn.BeginTransaction
            Dim myComm As New SqlClient.SqlCommand("Command text",myConn)
            myComm.Transaction = myTrans
           ' Perform your actions....
           ' Repeat the previous two steps for any additional commands
        End Try
