2213853 - Dynamic Prepare statement with foreign key violation returns CS_SUCCEED in ct_results - SAP ASE


  • Running Client-Library code sending a DELETE statement via dynamic SQL and it should exit the code via user defined macro to exit when a CTLIB call returns CS_FAIL.
  • With Language statement, "DELETE from table where col = value" will purposely cause ASE to throw errors:

Server error 547: Dependent foreign key constraint violation in a referential integrity constraint. dbname =  'tempdb', table name = 'tempdb..taba', constraint name = 'fk_taba_aid'.
Server error 3621: Command has been aborted.

  • With Dynamic SQL the errors are thrown, and the ct_results call should return CS_FAIL when processing the results when it reachs the portion of results with the errors, but it returns CS_SUCCEED instead, even though the result_type argument is set to CS_CMD_FAIL.
