Begins a transaction at the data source.

Overload List

Begins a transaction at the data source.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Function BeginTransaction() As OdbcTransaction
[C#] public OdbcTransaction BeginTransaction();
[C++] public: OdbcTransaction* BeginTransaction();
[JScript] public function BeginTransaction() : OdbcTransaction;

Begins a transaction at the data source with the specified IsolationLevel value.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Function BeginTransaction(IsolationLevel) As OdbcTransaction
[C#] public OdbcTransaction BeginTransaction(IsolationLevel);
[C++] public: OdbcTransaction* BeginTransaction(IsolationLevel);
[JScript] public function BeginTransaction(IsolationLevel) : OdbcTransaction;

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates an OdbcConnection and an OdbcTransaction. It also demonstrates how to use the BeginTransaction, Commit, and Rollback methods.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of BeginTransaction. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
