Hello experts,

I basically need a example of stored procedure transaction in a while loop or cursor so I can trap errors as it loops but continue with transaction and commit only the ones that are successful.

Here is a reference for doing commit/rollback on a transaction level:
http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/041906-1.shtml

The Try/Catch works in newer versions of SQL, the @@Error approach will work in SQL 2000.

You would just do something like this:
WHILE (someconition)

BEGIN
 

BEGIN TRANSACTION

-- other code here based on version, see link

-- either commit or rollback, but when done goes to next in loop
 

END

Using a cursor the logic flows the same.
DECLARE yourcursor CURSOR FOR ...

 

OPEN yourcursor

 

FETCH NEXT FROM yourcursor

 

WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0

BEGIN

    BEGIN TRANSACTION

    -- commit or rollback
 

    FETCH NEXT FROM yourcursor

END 

 

CLOSE yourcursor

DEALLOCATE yourcursor

Take note of the CURSOR_CLOSE_ON_COMMIT and XACT_ABORT.
--If you use a cursor:

SET CURSOR_CLOSE_ON_COMMIT OFF;
 

-- When SET XACT_ABORT is OFF, in some cases only the Transact-SQL statement that raised the error is rolled back and the transaction continues processing. Depending upon the severity of the error, the entire transaction may be rolled back even when SET XACT_ABORT is OFF. OFF is the default setting.

SET XACT_ABORT OFF;
 

WHILE @Variable1 <= @Variable2

 BEGIN

	BEGIN TRANSACTION

	BEGIN TRY

		BEGIN TRANSACTION;

		-- Your transaction here

		COMMIT TRANSACTION;

	END TRY

	BEGIN CATCH

		ROLLBACK TRANSACTION;

	END CATCH;
 

  SET @Variable2 = @Variable2 + 1;

 END;
