Kammer writes "I am using two DBs (myDB1 and myDB2) in two SQL 2000 Servers (mySQLServer1 and mySQLServer2) respectively, but in on of my application process I want to insert into a table called myTable1 in myDB1 and I also want to update the corresponding data in a table called myTable2 in myDB2. But the problem is I have to complete the whole process as a transaction. If anything go wrong during the process, all the insert and update should be rollbacked."

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
