The WRITE Adapter property AutoCommitAfter
allows you to control how FlowHeater builds import/update transactions when writing to a database.
- 0 = a single transaction is used for the complete import/update process (default)
- X = (a number) after each X rows are written, an AutoCommit is executed
- -1 (new) no database transactions are used
The new (-1) option disables database transactions (each row is effectively committed as soon as it is written) and this is useful when used together with the ODBC Adapter or OleDB Adapter when the underlying ODBC/OleDB database or driver cannot cope with database transactions.
