Michael,

If strmstpfd has these values

ststr stm#d stm#e
1 a b
2 c
3 d

SELECT * FROM michael/strmstpfd WHERE stm#d <> ' ' and stm#e <> ' '
would only return
ststr stm#d stm#e
1 a b

So if you had 1,2,3 in strmstp it would try to update 2 & 3 with null
values. Normally fixed by some usage of EXISTS to therefore only update 1
and ignore 2 & 3.
