I have two sp - sp1 and sp2

Sp1 is called from the client program

SP1 code
Begin Try
   Begin Transaction


                     if @TotAmtRefund_Receipt <> @TotAmtRefund_BillDet
                                     Select 'Mismatch in AmtRefund_Receipt and
                                                 AmtRefund_BillDetail Cannot Refund Bill... Contact Admin'

                 exec sp2

commit transaction

End Try


  IF XACT_STATE() <> 0  
     Select  Error_message() ErrorCondition
END CATCH           

sp2 code ( not enclosed within begin and commit transaction and try catch block)

my problem is that if the condition is not met only sp1 is getting rolled back  and sp2 is getting executed.  

In one of previous post i was told that once the sp2 is executed with in the Begin transaction of the sp1 , sp2 is implicitely part of sp1 transaction.

can some expert help me to resolve the issue
