Hi there. Please examine the coding in the following trigger. It's purpose is to display an error message if the user selects an invalid option. It is processing on top of an accounting application. The message does appear but I also want to change the values of certain fields so that the requisition lines do not disappear from view after processing has completed in the main application. These two update statements do not happen in spite of having a COMMIT TRAN immediately afterwards and commenting out the ROLLBACK TRAN instruction. I am thinking that the act of throwing up an error message is causing these updates to be cancelled. Do you agree and if so how do I solve this ?
The same thing happens if I use an INSTEAD OF trigger.
