Transactions and DDL statements

Dear Experts,

I am using SQL Server 2005. Can I have BEGIN TRANSACTION, ROLLBACK TRANSACTION etc in a batch script that has DDL statements such as
CREATE TABLE
DROP TABLE
CREATE StoredProc
DROP StoredProc ?

Thanks

Begin Transaction and Rollback Transaction are for data modification DML.  CREATE TABLE, DROP TABLE CREATE are DDL.  Begin transaction and rollback transaction do not work for DDL.

Yes, you can use them with DDL Statements too. SQL Server is an RDBMS which adheres to all these operations.
