After selecting the new sales employee you have to choose wether or not you want to execute using transactions. This means that if either of your selections updates fail and you have transactions enabled, all of the updates will be rolled back. You switch transactions on and off by clicking the checkbox “Use Transactions (Rollback if one or more fails)”.

After clicking the “Execute” button you will be prompted to verify that you want to update. If you choose yes the update will run and the result window will appear with the result. This update can take some time depending on the amount of selections.
