RE: VB/ADO/RDO/DAO/OHNO/UHOH and transactions

The default for all these is that transactions are handled "stupidly". =20

In both ODBC and OLE DB (which all these API's are built on), the
default is to autocommit, so every successful SQL statement is
automatically committed.  All these API's will have an option to disable
autocommit, in which case you will have to call an explicit commit
procedure.

Hey all,

After an interesting TAR on why an SMON process would be eating up 250MB
=3D of memory, I find that we may need to adjust the transactions on our
VB =3D programs.  Seeing as the only VB I've done consisted of a
full-screen =3D button that said "Click Me", I have no clue as to how
transactions are =3D handled in the various DB interfaces like ADO, RDO,
DAO, or whatever =3D we're using.

Anyone know a good online resource for this?  Google has oodles of =3D
fragments, but I don't know enough to know which might be "better".  It
=3D would also help if I knew what DB library(ies) we're using...  =
<blush>

TIA,
Rich
