Subject Re: [ib-support] Trigger problem
Hello Doug,

Since I was forwarned that Execeute Procedure can cause problems,
I always had my procedures return at least a single field, something
like STATUS being set to 0 when a procedure executed ok.
Since then used SELECT STATUS FROM PROCEDURE (PARMS...) in triggers
and procedures and software interfaces. Never had a failure or a
warning restricting such usuage in a trigger. To at least return
something comes in very handy debugging your procedure
by setting the returned value to various values in various
sections of your coding.

Best Regards
