Hi all,

I have a 4-table DB in PostgreSQL to which I connect using LibreOffice
Base.  I have a form with 2 subforms in place that allows me to:
Select an existing entity (from the ENTITY table)
Add a new financial transaction (to the TRANSREC table)
Add new line items for each transaction (to the TRANSDETAILS table).

I would like to take advantage of PostGRESQL's underlying transaction
(start, rollback, commit, etc.) to ensure that a given transaction and its
line items are entered as one single transaction.  I just don't know how to
implement that using Base as a front-end.

Maybe I really need something like macros and BASIC or Python to make such
a thing work?  If anyone knows a good tutorial on this subject, I can
certainly read - just haven't really found anything yet.
