Transactions in SQL Server (take 2956)

Transactions in SQL Server seems to be a difficult topic to grasp. This weekend I came across a blog-post where the poster showed a “solution” to the “The ROLLBACK TRANSACTION request has no corresponding BEGIN TRANSACTION” error we sometimes see when various stored procedures call each other. The solution (even though it masked out the error in question) did not get it quite right. So I thought I would make a post about the subject.
