I have a stored procedure that inserts does some inserts, updates and deletes.
If there is an error, I would like to record the error to the messagelog table
and rollback the transaction.

How can I do this?


BEGIN TRANSACTION

--Insert some data

--Insert some more data

--Delete some data

--update some data


If @@Error = 0
  COMMIT TRANSACTION
ELSE
  ROLLBACK TRANSACTION
  --would like to insert error into message log
  INSERT INTO MessageLog
  (Message, SPROC)
  (@MESSAGE, @SPROC)

to start with, you will need to use the BEGIN END as you have more than 1 statement.

If @@Error = 0
  COMMIT TRANSACTION
ELSE
BEGIN
  ROLLBACK TRANSACTION
  --would like to insert error into message log
  INSERT INTO MessageLog
  (Message, SPROC)
  (@MESSAGE, @SPROC)
END


now, the error message itself will be tricky...
but, check out this cool function:

Hi,

Declare @AnyError Int,@MESSAGE varchar(100), @SPROC varchar(100)
SET @AnyError = 0

BEGIN TRANSACTION

--Insert some data
If @@ERROR <> 0
GOTO Err

--Insert some more data
If @@ERROR <> 0
GOTO Err

--Delete some data
If @@ERROR <> 0
GOTO Err

--update some data
If @@ERROR <> 0
GOTO Err

  COMMIT TRANSACTION
  RETURN       
      
Err:
 ROLLBACK TRANSACTION
  --would like to insert error into message log
  INSERT INTO MessageLog
  (Message, SPROC) values
  (@MESSAGE, @SPROC)
0
