am using an update statement in a pro c code.
It gives me a data not found error.
Needed to know on this as according to me update should not give a data not found error.
same update when used in a PLSQL block does not give any error.

Pro*C does not give any error.
You search for the error in sqlca (for instance) but only if you search for the right sqlca and in the right place.

Post your code if you want some help.

It does not have any trigger associated.
Also if it had a trigger the same error would have come even from teh plsql block.

code is something like this:
exec sql
update emp set ename='abc'
where ename='qwe';

if(sqlca.sqlcode != SUCCESSFUL)
{
sprintf(msg,"Error in updating , process exiting\n");
dump_error(msg);
exit(1);
}

I don't see how you can get a "no data found" with your code.
It is just a OK/NOK test.

hi

send your sql/procedure

table scripts as well and use codes


e.g
 update mytable
   set col1='the_value-u_want_to_update_to'
   where cols1=var1
   and col2 in(select cd1 from table_name )



and the output you are trying to archieve.

code is something like this

So, is the real code a bit different ?

Now, a "no data found" means a value of +100 in sqlca.sqlcode (or in some rare cases +1403 if I'm not mistaken).

And this is possible when no records in your database matches the WHERE-clause of your UPDATE-statement.

I don't think that even in this case a code other than 0 is returned.
There is another sqlca/sqlda field to know how many rows are updated.
I don't have a server to check it but I'm pretty sure of this.

Michel

Same here: no system anymore to check this out.

Did found some code where after an UPDATE sqlca.sqlcode was tested against 0 and +100.

Didn't find any code that checked sqlca.sqlerrd[2] to verify the number of rows updated being 0.

Yes i agree that there are no records matching taht condition in the table,but as per my knowledge update does not throw a no data found error.hence i have the doubt.
The same update given in a plsql block does not throw this error even though it does not find any records to match its condition.

It is a standard case.
Updating no row is normal.
Selecting no row worths a warning.

Couldn't resist Razz

With a little help I managed to set up a small test-case in PRO*C on one of our Linux-servers.

I've attached the source-code.
The program does the following:


  • DROP TABLE
  • CREATE TABLE
  • INSERT ONE ROW
  • UPDATE EXISTING ROW
  • UPDATE NON-EXISTING ROW


Output looks like this:

Connected to 'scott/tiger@mydb'
TABLE DROPPED
TABLE CREATED
ROW INSERTED
UPDATED 1 rows SET VAL 1 WHERE ID 1
SQL ERROR:  UPDATE
	(100) ORA-00100: no data found


As you notice the SQLCODE has a positive value of 100.
It's up to the application to verify if the "NO DATA FOUND" situation is a real error or not.

You're right, I reread the documentation and it is said that a code +100 (MODE=ANSI) or +1403 (MODE=ORACLE) is returned if a WHERE clause, a SELECT or a FETCH returns nothing.

Thanks to put this back in my mind.

True.so that means that we can get a no data found error for update statement when no records exist when used in Pro C.
But the same thing if done through PLSQL does not give this error?

Also please can you explain this a little more:
"It's up to the application to verify if the "NO DATA FOUND" situation is a real error or not."


If there is some document that i can read,please share the same with me.

What I meant to say is that it is application-specific behavior whether a NO_DATA_FOUND situation should be considered as an appliation error or just a warning.

A little sample: a client-table needs to be updated for some reason. Like: every client that lives in the United States:

UPDATE CLIENT
SET some_column = some_value
WHERE CLIENT_COUNTRY = 'US' ;


It could be considered perfectly normal that no records are updated as you don't have any clients in the US.

But what if you have a table PROCESS_FLOW where you keep track of the state of a PROCESS?
You expect a specific row (or number of rows) to be in there, and they aren't?

UPDATE PROCESS_FLOW
SET FLOW_STATUS = 'IN PROGRESS'
WHERE PROCESS_NAME = 'INVOICING' ;



I assume that the INVOICING record should be there at all times. If this update failes, then something could be very wrong with my data.

Hope this clarifies my point a bit

First, this is not an error but a warning.
Then, warnings do obviously not raise an error.

Exception raises only on error not on warning.

(Reply to the next question: I can't see any other way to say it.)

Because PL/SQL only raises the error and not the warnings (didn't I already say that?).

In the end, it behaves differently in PL/SQL and Pro*C, you have to accept and do with this.
Full stop.

From PL/SQL doc:
Quote:

NO_DATA_FOUND:
A SELECT INTO statement returns no rows, or your program references a deleted element in a nested table or an uninitialized element in an index-by table.
