Summary: rollback to savepoint in case of error

Initial Comment:
the current snapshot driver only supports manual rollback to savepoints
if ( and only if ) all previous statements return with success.

e.g.

My env :

win2003 server
8.1.0 postgresql
psqlodbc 8.01.0105

CREATE TABLE testtable (
f1 int2 primary key,
f2 varchar(10) null);

the following snippet works

BEGIN
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 12, 'hello');
SAVEPOINT SP_INSERT;
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 13, 'hello1');
ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT SP_INSERT;
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 13, 'hello123');
COMMIT;

the following snippet don't work

BEGIN
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 12, 'hello');
SAVEPOINT SP_INSERT;
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 12, 'hello1'); <-- auto rollback occurs !!!
ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT SP_INSERT;
INSERT INTO testtable values ( 13, 'hello123');
COMMIT;

Why does an error breaks the savepoint environment ?

By now I used an application side workaround as I do an select before
each insert to check if a certain row already exists in the table.
If it exist I try an update on the row.
( but this is a real performance killer ... )

Message:
I accept the bug in case autocommit = off => don't take a care on transaction state.

What driver version do you use? Do you use 8.01.0105 patched with SqlState patch?

Could you attach mylog output for second example (the failure one)?

Thanks

Message:
I switched autocommit off with the
SQLSetConnectAttr() Function

See the first example which works well !!!

Message:
What about autocommit StmtOption? Don't you have autocommit on?
Driver doesn't support savepoints in this case yet.
