Tom,

I'll send this over to the odbc list.  However, the odbc driver is
liked into our cobol environment.  I did not change the driver.  We
are running the 7.2.5 odbc driver.  This is why I am pointing to a
difference in the db responses.

The entire environment is the exactly same except for the database
versions (I am actually running the exact same code and odbc driver
against the 2 db's).  I can have the application connect via odbc to
my 7.3.4 instance and get the sqlcode of 0.  I can have the same
application with the same odbc connect via odbc to my 8.0.3 instance
and I get the sqlcode of 100.

This is what is pointing me to a problem with one of the db's.  It
appears that the sqlca code has had to of changed between the 7.3.4
and 8 code and is now behaving in a different (and unexpected) manner.

BTW, which version is correct?  Should a no rows return query give a 0 or a 100?

Chris
