In SQL the semicolon is only specified at the end of the statement.
And the compound statement is:
Begin ...

This is the routine body (of a running test stored procedure):
Begin -- Begin without semi colon!!!

Declare NbrRows Integer Default 0;

select 1 Into NbrRows
From InventCum
Limit 1;

If NbrRows <> 0 -- No semicolon here!!!
Then Delete from InventCum;
End If;

Insert Into InventCum
Select ItemNo, Sum(Quantity), Current_Timestamp, Session_User
From InventoryX
Group By ItemNo;

The first statement is not before the end of the first statement after

Betreff: Re: Why did Stored Procedure execute?

Didin't the semicolon after the CREATE PROCEDURE end the CREATE?
And then the BEGIN stands there all alone and executes itself.
The CREATE PROCEDURE MYPROC should have been followed by a parentheses, not
a semicolon.

... the (SQL) Source code in a SQL Routine (Stored Procedure, Trigger
and User defined function) is always embedded in a compound statement
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.
