I have a requirement to return a batch of records and then mark the batch complete. I was thinking to acheive this with a select and the update. Something like:

UPDATE dbo.Table
SET Retrieved = 'Y'
OUTPUT inserted.x, inserted.y, inserted.z;
The question I have, is what happens if the procedure executes, returns the select but the connection breaks before the batch is re received Does the batch still get updated?

Otherwise can anyone think of a better way to acheive this with stored procs?

You should just do an SP, return the records, then update. If it is all within a transaction it is all or nothing, everything commits, or everything rolls back.

i think you should be doing select followed by an update of retrieved field as 'Y' both wrapped within a transaction
