Subject RE: [ib-support] Idea for a new field type for FB 2,0 or IB 7?
Author Paulo Gaspar
And I prefer just the other way around.

I only miss a "returning" clause to get auto-generated values back in
some INSERT statement.

What I really miss is being able to return result sets ( = a set of
rows = the result of some SELECT) from inside a Stored Proc.

This is one of the few things I miss from M$ SQLServer!

Have fun,
Paulo Gaspar
