If I take these 400 stored procedures that I have and use 'isql -input
commandfilename.sql' I will get no errors on those 400 SP's. If I
read this file using IB_Script then I get the above errors only on
commands that have a NUMERIC(15, 2) as an input parameter. I then
isolated just that one command as a simple example that will fail in
IB_SCRIPT and will not fail in isql. I have been using this type of
stored proceedures for over 3 years on a 1.5.3 Firebird database.
Just recently in the last 4 months I have been trying to run this set
of procedures using ib_script so I can allow the customer to do a
oneclick download of a version update over the internet. All other
command files to create a database, to create triggers, to insert some
common data via insert commands, to delete procedures, etc. all work.

How do I get you a complete sample?
