• Subject: Using Stored Procedures from Seagate (Crystal) Info

Unfortunately, stored procedures don't work at all from Seagate Info 
(Crystal Reports). Seagate has apparently not followed the ODBC spec, and 
insists on overriding the datasource attribute that allows Read/Call with 
Read Only. This makes all stored procedure calls fail. Also unfortunately, 
apparently the AS/400 community isn't important enough to merit much 
concern, as the support tech told me that, although they had an AS/400, it 
wasn't configured so that they could test the code against it. I told him 
that this wasn't negotiable. The code is in error and needs to be fixed. I 
am, however, but one voice howling from the wilderness. I know some of you 
are Seagate/Crystal customers. If you would like to use stored procedures, 
how about letting them know? Maybe a sudden upsurge of interest would help 
them see the error of their ways. BTW, stored procedures are awesome. The 
programmer gets to do the fun stuff, and the user gets the grunt work!!!
