ABORT(7)                         SQL Commands                         ABORT(7)



NAME
       ABORT - abort(3,7) the current transaction


SYNOPSIS
       ABORT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]


DESCRIPTION
       ABORT  rolls  back  the  current transaction and causes all the updates
       made by the transaction to be discarded.  This command is identical  in(1,8)
       behavior  to  the  standard  SQL command ROLLBACK [rollback(7)], and is
       present only for historical reasons.

PARAMETERS
       WORK

       TRANSACTION
              Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES
       Use COMMIT [commit(7)] to successfully terminate a transaction.

       Issuing ABORT when not inside a transaction does no harm, but  it  will
       provoke a warning message.

EXAMPLES
       To abort(3,7) all changes:

       ABORT;


COMPATIBILITY
       This  command is a PostgreSQL extension present for historical reasons.
       ROLLBACK is the equivalent standard SQL command.

SEE ALSO
       BEGIN [begin(7)], COMMIT [commit(l)], ROLLBACK [rollback(l)]
