NAME

       ABORT - abort the current transaction

SYNOPSIS

       ABORT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]

DESCRIPTION

       ABORT  rolls  back  the  current transaction and causes all the updates
       made by the transaction to be discarded.  This command is identical  in
       behavior  to  the  standard  SQL command ROLLBACK [rollback(7)], and is
       present only for historical reasons.

PARAMETERS

       WORK

       TRANSACTION
              Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES

       Use COMMIT [commit(7)] to successfully terminate a transaction.

       Issuing ABORT when not inside a transaction does no harm, but  it  will
       provoke a warning message.

EXAMPLES

       To abort all changes:

       ABORT;

COMPATIBILITY

       This  command is a PostgreSQL extension present for historical reasons.
       ROLLBACK is the equivalent standard SQL command.
