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.

       BEGIN [begin(7)], COMMIT [commit(7)], ROLLBACK [rollback(7)]
