Rolling back changes (Serializable) within Stored proc

Hi All,

I have a main stored procedure that calls various other stored proc's during it's execution. I'm trying to write some sort of logic so that if the main sp or any subsequent sp's called within it fails it should rollback the entire transaction.

Any sample code would be appreciated.

Thanks.

<Potentially stupid question>  Have you tried using a transaction?
BEGIN TRY
  BEGIN TRAN tr
  -- do your stuff here

  -- If code execution makes it here, then good to go. 
  COMMIT TRAN tr
END TRY

BEGIN CATCH
  -- If code execution makes it here then there was a failure, kill the transaction
  ROLLBACK TRAN tr
END CATCH

Hi Jim,

I implemented your logic and it works.

Hi aneesa83

I would prefer Transaction within a TRY....CATCH block rather then just rolling back the transaction.
