Hi,

I need to add place some TSQL into a TRANSACTION.  I understand the pricipal but am confused by the ROLLBACK command.

If it did

BEGIN TRANSACTION
DELETE OrderItems WHERE order_num = 12345
DELETE Orders WHERE order_num = 12345
COMMIT TRANSACTION

Is there any point in having adding a ROLLBACK statement to this code.   What would I gain from using a ROLLBACK command?

Thanks
nutnut
