CommitTrans — Saves any changes and ends the current transaction. It may also start a new transaction.

RollbackTrans — Cancels any changes and ends the current transaction. It may also start a new transaction.
Cancel Cancels execution of a pending, asynchronous method call.
CancelBatch Cancels a pending batch update.
CancelUpdate Cancels any changes that were made to the current or new row of a Recordset object, or the Fields collection of a Record object, before calling the Update method.

Requery Updates the data in a Recordset object by re-executing the query on which the object is based.
Resync Refreshes the data in the current Recordset object, or Fields collection of a Record object, from the underlying database.
Save Saves the Recordset in a file or Stream object.
SaveToFile Saves the binary contents of a Stream to a file.
Seek Searches the index of a Recordset to quickly locate the row that matches the specified values, and changes the current row position to that row.
