Hi Ravi, it depends on whether your application puts all statements for a single transaction into a single SQL call. This would be preferred for ease of maintenance and performance (esp if stored procs are used) Cheers
What kind of application is using this SQL server database?
Are you looking for performance based solution or a simple data consistency based approach? Satya SKJ
