INSERTS that will STAY after a ROLLBACK is issued

By well0549,

Sometimes it is usefull to log stuff in SQL server while stored procs are running. If a long stored proc runs you sometimes want to be able to log a message in a loggin file. But what if a rollback occurs.... The message is lost as well.

Here is a method to set up a seperate connection to SQL inside TSQL and log those messages......

Had a discussion a while ago about this but this solution never popped up.....

Run this script and be amazed.........
