SIMPOL Documentation



Adds the output data of an ODBC SQL statement to a specified table. If the return value is not .nul then the function has failed and the string contains information describing the error. After the data is added to the table then there is no attempt to commit the base object; that is the responsibility of the caller. If the function fails at some point then no attempt is made to rollback or commit the records added to the table up to the point of the failure.
