Subject RE: [ib-support] SQL Error
Author Jack Cane
Thanks, and yes, I am using FB.

The revised query executed without an error, using IB WorkBench. The status
bar at the bottom of IBWB gives the number of rows affected and the
processing time. There is also the following statement, immediately above
the status bar: "PLAN (MEMBERNAMES NATURAL)".

However, when I look at the table data, the user name and password columns
are unchanged from their previous values. Closed and reopened IBWB, no
change; re-ran the query, still no change.

Is there a commit command that must follow the update query?

I could also try to run the update query with my Delphi Web app.

Also, would like to have a pointer to an online reference for the substring
syntax and other FB SQL expressions.

Sorry, it's

SUBSTRING( firstname FROM 1 FOR 1 ) ||
SUBSTRING( lastname FROM 1 FOR 7 )
