Checks for outstanding referential integrity violations before a commit.
tname A VARCHAR(128) parameter containing the name of a table with a row that is currently violating referential integrity.
keyname A VARCHAR(128) parameter containing the name of the corresponding foreign key index.
If the database option wait_for_commit is On, or if a foreign key is defined using CHECK ON COMMIT in the CREATE TABLE statement, you can update the database in such a way as to violate referential integrity, as long as these violations are resolved before the changes are committed.
You can use the sa_check_commit system procedure to check whether there are any outstanding referential integrity violations before attempting to commit your changes.
The returned parameters indicate the name of a table containing a row that is currently violating referential integrity, and the name of the corresponding foreign key index.

The following set of commands can be executed from Interactive SQL. They delete rows from the Departments table in the sample database, in such a way as to violate referential integrity. The call to the sa_check_commit system procedure checks which tables and keys have outstanding violations, and the rollback cancels the change:
SET TEMPORARY OPTION wait_for_commit='On' go DELETE FROM Departments go CREATE VARIABLE tname VARCHAR( 128 ); CREATE VARIABLE keyname VARCHAR( 128 ) go CALL sa_check_commit( tname, keyname ) go SELECT tname, keyname go ROLLBACK go
