PLSQL Question

I have to insert into data into five tables record by record. If in one of the insert the record is going to exception block then I have to do roll back to save point.
When I am using this functionality it is getting rollback for that table but it is continuing execution and inserting data in other tables.
My requirement is if one record goes in exception block that particular record should not be inserted into any of the other tables(record should be skipped) and continue with next record.
ALso, rollback should happen to only that record not all the records.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Using transaction control with SAVEPOINT might help you to achieve what you are trying to do. For example,
BEGIN
  SAVEPOINT start_tran;
  INSERT INTO ... first_table ;
   INSERT INTO ... second_table ;
  INSERT INTO ... third_table;
 INSERT INTO ... fourth_table ;
 INSERT INTO ... fifth_table ;
  EXCEPTION
  WHEN OTHERS THEN
    ROLLBACK TO start_tran;
    RAISE;
END;

I have nested loops that I am using in code. In exception block when I say rollback to save point it continues with other for loop and inserts into remaining loops.
But my requirement is rollback should happen completely for that record.
Thanks for your help.

Since I don't see the code, I think the issue is the code is not  properly exiting the loop(s) after a rollback an exception occurs. Do you label the Loops that can be used to properly exit? Please see if this link can help (under section "Labeling a PL/SQL Loop"):

One question here, if I write rollback to savepoint in exception section then that insert in that loop will be performed rollback but it will continue with other loops insert?
