Regarding executing sql query in shell script


I have one SQL file prepared in UNIX and one script that is executing that.

In SQL i have Update and create queries.

I want to introduce conditions in SQL file (in UNIX) that if either of the create or update query failes whole transaction should be rollback.

I just have 1 create and 2 update and i dont want to work on SQL as i want this to be sorted out using shell scripting,
