Hi,

I've got a multitheaded application using MSSQL.
This question has been simplified to avoid confusion.

If I program 10 threads to do the following 10,000 times:-

UPDATE tblTest SET fCounter=fCounter+1

..can I be sure that fCounter will always equal 100,000 at the end even though its getting the command hundreds of times per second?

Is there a setting I need to change that will force SQL server to keep track of things properly?
Thanks
Dan

It should do because SQL will lock the row for each update. Therefore SQL should allow more than one connection to perform the update at once.
