NO ACTIVE SQL TRANSACTION - Indicates that the current session has no active SQL transaction, and the requested operation cannot be performed.

How It Affects Your App

This means that any changes made to the database will not be saved and the application will not be able to perform any database operations. This can lead to data loss and disruption of the application's functionality. Additionally, the application may become unstable and crash due to the lack of an active transaction.
