When executing a SmartObject method that in turn executes an SQL Stored Procedure, the SmartObject returns the following error:

"Transaction count after EXECUTE indicates a mismatching number of BEGIN and COMMIT statements. Previous count = 1, current count = 0."



  • This error only occurs after applying 4.7 November 2017 CU, or any CUs that were released after November 2017.
  • On 4.7 without any CU and FP applied, you may get an SQL transaction has completed; it is no longer usable error.
  • Stored procedure has nested transactions.
  • Stored procedure contains RAISERROR. Removing the RAISERROR in the stored procedure allows the SmartObject to be executed without any errors.

Troubleshooting Steps

To resolve this error, please do the following:
  1. Edit your SQL Server service instance.
  2. Set Suppress Transaction to true.


  3. Update the service instance.
  4. Refresh the SmartObject, and test the SmartObject again. The error should go away.
