ANSI Transaction-semantics are supported for Teradata Database for UNIX version 2 release 2 (or later). If ANSI Transaction-semantics are used, the first request begins a transaction implicitly. All subsequent requests are part of the transaction until one of the following events occurs:
  • SQL COMMIT statement
  • SQL ROLLBACK statement
  • LOGOFF statement
  • Failure response

A failure response rolls back only the statement causing the error unless that error threatens the integrity of Teradata Database, in which case the entire transaction is rolled back.
