between Begin and End) You may can refrain from the compound statement if
there is only a single statement to be executed in the routine.

Betreff: Re: Why did Stored Procedure execute?

Because you ended the CREATE PROCEDURE statement with a semicolon, and then
inline in your SQL session you opened a clause with BEGIN.

I wrote what I thought was a stored procedure that I could execute
later when I needed it. I ran the RUNSQLSTM command interactively to
compile it.
At first there were a few syntax errors that needed correction. Fixed

There is no Stored Procedure as an object in the library.

Here's the first few lines of that procedure.




update Library/FileName set BICMPY = 72 where BICMPY in(20,71,90,95);

several hundred more lines.


It's been a few months since I wrote a Stored procedure, but I don't
know how this thing could have executed with me actually calling it

What am I overlooking?
