Subject Re: [IBO] FB 1.0 to 1.5 and OldParameterOrdering
Author jimbehr3446
Helen, thanks for your extensive advice. I did some more digging and
see that around October of 2003 you tried to get the FB developers to
make the parameter ordering a connection dependent setting. I'm sorry
they did not listen to you because mine is just the kind of problem
you were trying to prevent.

It appears from Jason's messages and from the IBO source code that IBO
attempts to dymamically determine the parameter ordering. If this is
so, and is working properly then shouldn't I be able to set the
OldParameterOrdering to 1 on the server and have all versions of my
program work correctly?

I recognize that this would not be the preferred method since any
non-IBO programs may have problems with the non-standard ordering. I
looked through our old source code and don't see any instance where we
use IBO to get more than 1 parameter back from an "Execute Procedure".
So does that mean we don't even need to worry about the parameter
ordering and can just use FB 1.5 with OldParameterOrdering commented out?
