We have (part of) some code that gets values from a database field and logs that to a file. It turns out that in some rare occasions, the field ends with newline+carriage return, and that breaks our Dialog Manager code.
0 NUMBER OF RECORDS IN TABLE= 0 LINES= 0
0 ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 39 IN PROCEDURE ADHOCRQ FOCEXEC *
(FOC257) MISSING QUOTE MARKS: 'Frobblemox
Is there any way to catch this in the breaking code?
The text causing the issue is part of the primary key of a table; modifying the value on read would break references to the records in this table.
I could exclude this data, the rows are marked with a 'Cancelled' status, but sometimes that is relevant information, so I consider that among the last resorts.This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,
