running a complex sql with begin tran commit tran

I have a complex sql that has several steps to eventually update some records in a table. To identify the records it pulls some records in three temp tables (#Priority, #pi, #he) and then finds distinct common rows by joining those three temp tables into a fourth temp table #cross, then fires an update  and a delete command which looks like the code copied below, and then it uses cursors to update some columns in another table.

UPDATE OMC
		SET SCID = c.PChart,
			SCProductID = 9,
			SCHREID = c.HREID,
			ETypeID = 2,
			ChangeID = System_User,
			ChangeDate = getdate()	
		FROM dbo.OMChart OMC
		JOIN #cross c
		ON   OMC.MCID = c.HDC
		WHERE SCID is null


DELETE FROM OMChart
		WHERE MCID IN (SELECT mc.MCID
									FROM dbo.OMChart mc
									JOIN #cross c
									  ON mc.MCID = c.PChart
									WHERE  mc.SCID IS NULL)

Open in new window



My question is that will this sql that involves all these temp tables in memory and cursors run with begin tran and commit tran. I want to see how many rows are inserted in the temp tables and how many rows are updated in each step before i commit the tran.

Thanks,

temp tables can be used within begin/commit tran

How much records are affected in your last statement you can by using the @@ROWCOUNT directly after that statement. cfr http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187316(v=SQL.110).aspx

within  a transaction mus just be vallid sql

but off-topic  try to avoid using a cursor and especialy when nested, it's slow and gets slower the more records gets into your tables
