TRANSACTION Statement (Microsoft Access SQL)

Used to initiate and conclude explicit transactions.

Initiate a new transaction.

BEGIN TRANSACTION

Conclude a transaction by committing all work performed during the transaction.

COMMIT [TRANSACTION | WORK]

Conclude a transaction by rolling back all work performed during the transaction.

ROLLBACK [TRANSACTION | WORK]

Transactions are not started automatically. To start a transaction, you must do so explicitly using BEGIN TRANSACTION.

Transactions can be nested up to five levels deep. To start a nested transaction, use BEGIN TRANSACTION within the context of an existing transaction.

Transactions are not supported for linked tables.
