COMMIT(7)                        SQL Commands                        COMMIT(7)



NAME
       COMMIT - commit the current transaction


SYNOPSIS
       COMMIT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]


DESCRIPTION
       COMMIT  commits the current transaction. All changes made by the trans-
       action become visible to others and are guaranteed to be durable  if(3,n)  a
       crash occurs.

PARAMETERS
       WORK

       TRANSACTION
              Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES
       Use ROLLBACK [rollback(7)] to abort(3,7) a transaction.

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

EXAMPLES
       To commit the current transaction and make all changes permanent:

       COMMIT;


COMPATIBILITY
       The SQL standard only specifies the two forms COMMIT and  COMMIT  WORK.
       Otherwise, this command is fully conforming.

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