Subject: RE: Sybase IQ bind parameter problem
Date: Mar 24 2005 4:27PM

    Placeholders in the DBI interface for Sybase uses Dynamic SQL in ASE. In other words, the rules are defined by the ASE's Dynamic SQL.
    The particular update statement that you mention with placeholders in the SET clause & WHERE clause works fine with ASE. If the Dynamic SQL rules
are different in ASA or IQ, it may not work. Looking at the error text, it seems to come from ASA, not IQ per se. or is it an ASA error being reported by IQ.
    You could try the stored procedure route. That should definitely work.
    Looks like we may need separate drivers for ASE, ASA, IQ, Repserver, OpenServer. Michael, can you comment on this ?

Subject: Sybase IQ bind parameter problem




I am unable to use bind parameters in a simple query using Sybase IQ when the column being bound to is not an integer.


The following code


my $sqlstmt =" UPDATE creditqr.VolCurveDef SET QuoteType = ? WHERE VolCurveDefID = ? ";

my $sth = $dbi->prepare($sqlstmt);


eval {

  $sth->bind_param( 1, 'SNAP', SQL_VARCHAR);

  $sth->bind_param( 2, 2672444, SQL_INTEGER);



if ($@) {

  print $@;



Produces the error 


DBD::Sybase::st execute failed: Server message number=21 severity=14 state=0 line=0 text=ASA Error -1000187: Unable to implicitly convert column 'QuoteType' to datatype (varchar) from datatype (integer).


If I bind to just integer values however the db is quite happy.


Has anyone come across anything similar and know of a fix?
