Ditto what Mike said: 

" On mysql..  can't you prebuild your multi-command transaction in a variable"

I periodically do this kind of thing. assuming the transaction is exactly the same… one way is to build a single SQL query from your data.

Assume you need something like this, getting and SQL query into a string, from raw data with LC's text processing tools is easy:

INSERT INTO `mytable` (item,quantity,amount)
#(no problem doing 2000 of these)

and then do the insert as a single query/transaction and let the dBase handle it.

    (with a beginning and ending to the transaction) and then use revexecutesql
    with a single call for the one big transaction?
