Subject RE: [IBO] A problem with a procedure

I did this (before sending the original email):


and it didn't work (whether I use SUSPEND in the script or not).

I've tried again and I get an exception:

ISC ERROR CODE: 335544569
Dynamic SQL Error
SQL error code = -104
Token Unknown - line 1, char 19

My code uses a TIB_Cursor since all of my other requests return more than
one record.

What else might I be doing wrong ?

>Can this be explained ? Should I remove the SUSPEND

Yes. A cursor is needed for a stored procedure that loops through a set
and outputs (potentially) multiiple rows. A cursor is established in a SP
with a FOR..SELECT loop. You use SUSPEND for cursors.

Your SP isn't a selectable SP, it's an executable one. It has no cursor.
You should be calling the procedure by calling the Execute method on an
EXECUTE PROCEDURE statement and reading the Fields[] array to get the
result. Use TIB_Cursor or TIB_DSQL for your statement object.
