Correct.

Bingo!

With that advice, I can get back to where I was pre-upgrade by:

o) throwing away first (empty) set  (?)
o) using fetch loop as you indicated

Works for me, but I assume a lingering question is why?

I noticed that a second consecutive query (in this same session)
works with the "old" fetch loop coding...

Thanks!
