ROLLBACK

Basic form
ROLLBACK WORK.

 

Effect
Closes a logical processing unit by reversing all database changes made since the last COMMIT .

You use this statement if you cannot be certain that all the database changes have been executed correctly.

The update routines are not performed.

ROLLBACK WORK belongs to the Open SQL command set.

cannot continue because the database cursor is invalid. After the
ROLLBACK statement, you should therefore ensure that all SELECT
processing has been explicitly terminated.
