Using transactions to delete records from SQL Server
Transactions are a great way to perform many actions but make it appear as one unit. Always start a transaction with BEGIN TRAN. Let's take a look at these statements: 1: BEGIN TRAN 2: DELETE SCHEDULES When this code runs, SQL Server opens a transactions and tentatively deletes all records from the SCHEDULES. The records are not actually deleted until a COMMIT. When a tranmsaction starts, SQL Server places a lock on the SCHEDULES rows or the entire table. This lock will prevent other users from making ......
