SQL: Want to update multiple rows in a single update command, but roll back if any of the rows doesn't exist.

Let's say i want to do 3 updates in a single update statement.
 update table set columnB = 'abcd' where columnA in ('1','2','3')
Assume columnA='1' exists but not for '2' or '3'.
The second update is not valid(the key doesn't exist in the db). The third update is also not valid.
So i don't want any update to happen. I tried doing this but it didn't work:

"update statement to update 3 rows, 2 of which don't exist."

if connection returns the number of rows affected (if not, you can query it:

and if that does not match the number of values put in, you rollback, otherwise you commit

note: rollback will not work on MyISAM tables
