Try and execute the SQL below on SQL Server 2005 (use a test database as 2 stored procedures are created).

When "SecurityCheck" raises the error I need "SomeAction" to ROLLBACK TRANSACTION and stop executing. "SomeAction" should never reach the PRINT statement.

Thanks,
Jimmy


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[SecurityCheck]
AS
BEGIN
  RAISERROR('HEY! You are not allowed to print anything!', 16, 1)
END
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[SomeAction]
AS
BEGIN
  BEGIN TRANSACTION
    EXEC SecurityCheck
    PRINT 'This should never be printed'
  COMMIT TRANSACTION
END
GO

EXEC [dbo].[SomeAction]
