Dear Evan,

It depends what you send in your SQL statement ($sqlstmt), as far as i know
Interbase need only commit-statements depending on your I-Base server
setting AUTO-COMMIT=Tue/False. And only then when you send UPDATE queries.
For SELECT statements you dont need a COMMIT. But beware that you left with
an active result set when you do not send a COMMIT.

Kind regards,
