Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

Here I want to take advantage of MTS in my asp pages.
There are 4-6 big queries being executed one after the another.If some errorneous condition happens,i want to
copletely roll back and unsave changes if happened.

"So if executes all 5 queries executes or none" is my motto.
Can I use MTS using MS-ACCESS as back end ??


RE: Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

you can use mts with access. it has a limitaion that you cant use transactions with more than 1 DB ( as you can with sql-server or oracle).

you can also use transactions withuout mts, with ADO (if con is adodb.connection, use con.begintrans con.committrans con.rolbacktrans) it is more simple in your case i think.

RE: Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

Right but,
I read that JET(Access) doesnt support transactions(MTS) ?

RE: Regarding MTS and MS-ACCESS

the best thing to do is check.
im sure that the jet supports transactions(you dont nead mts for it), because i did it about a milion times.

im almost sure, that you can use transactions with access and mts, but check it, it will take you 5 minutes.

what i am sure is that the jet does not support distributed transactions with mts, involving other databases, such as sql server or oracle. this is a limitation
