SQL SERVER – Stored Procedure and Transactions

June 2, 2010 by pinaldave

I just overheard the following statement – “I do not use Transactions in SQL as I use Stored Procedure“.

I just realized that there are so many misconceptions about this subject. Transactions has nothing to do with Stored Procedures. Let me demonstrate that with a simple example.

USE tempdb
GO
– Create 3 Test Tables
CREATE TABLE TABLE1 (ID INT);
CREATE TABLE TABLE2 (ID INT);
CREATE TABLE TABLE3 (ID INT);
GO
– Create SP
CREATE PROCEDURE TestSP
AS
INSERT INTO
TABLE1 (ID)
VALUES (1)
INSERT INTO TABLE2 (ID)
VALUES ('a')
INSERT INTO TABLE3 (ID)
VALUES (3)
GO
– Execute SP
– SP will error out
EXEC TestSP
GO
– Check the Values in Table
SELECT *
FROM TABLE1;
SELECT *
FROM TABLE2;
SELECT *
FROM TABLE3;
GO

Now, the main point is: If Stored Procedure is transactional then, it should roll back complete transactions when it encounters any errors. Well, that does not happen in this case, which proves that Stored Procedure does not only provide just the transactional feature to a batch of T-SQL.

Let’s see the result very quickly.

It is very clear that there were entries in table1 which are not shown in the subsequent tables. If SP was transactional in terms of T-SQL Query Batches, there would be no entries in any of the tables. If you want to use Transactions with Stored Procedure, wrap the code around with BEGIN TRAN and COMMIT TRAN.

The example is as following.
CREATE PROCEDURE TestSPTran
AS
BEGIN TRAN
INSERT INTO
TABLE1 (ID)
VALUES (11)
INSERT INTO TABLE2 (ID)
VALUES ('b')
INSERT INTO TABLE3 (ID)
VALUES (33)
COMMIT
GO
– Execute SP
EXEC TestSPTran
GO
– Check the Values in Tables
SELECT *
FROM TABLE1;
SELECT *
FROM TABLE2;
SELECT *
FROM TABLE3;
GO
– Clean up
DROP TABLE Table1
DROP TABLE Table2
DROP TABLE Table3
GO

In this case, there will be no entries in any part of the table. What is your opinion about this blog post? Please leave your comments about it here.
