Rolls back a user-specified transaction to the beginning of the transaction.

Topic link iconTransact-SQL Syntax Conventions

[ ; ]

This statement functions identically to ROLLBACK TRANSACTION except that ROLLBACK TRANSACTION accepts a user-defined transaction name. With or without specifying the optional WORK keyword, this ROLLBACK syntax is ISO-compatible.

When nesting transactions, ROLLBACK WORK always rolls back to the outermost BEGIN TRANSACTION statement and decrements the @@TRANCOUNT system function to 0.

ROLLBACK WORK permissions default to any valid user.
