Right, if you're using a transaction block then yes you need the
intermediate semicolons added yourself. (unless you're using multiple
separate revexecutesql statements rather than handing off a complete list
in 1 go)

So yeah if you do

revexecutesql with your begin transaction

a repeat with a revexecutesql for each command to use


and a revexecutesql with a commit after the repeat then no semicolons
should be added. Since you're building the whole thing and then sending it
as a unit, all but the last would be needed as you surmise.

I was just going based on the code you posted previously so was unsure of
your method.
