Seems you missed my point.
Actually I am wondering if pgsql can work on its own
with garbage data like mysql. for example if it
should be expid ='1' but I use it with expid='xyz'.
In this case, MySql will seliently give you 0 row
instead of error message. From your point, Seems
Pgsql will only give error message unless you deal
with it manually.
