Teradata Preprocessor2 for Embedded SQL Programmer Guide

Preprocessor2 for Embedded SQL
Programming Reference
  • The WHENEVER statement must precede the SQL statement or statements for which the condition is to apply.
  • When it is used, the host label object must follow C rules for the C goto instruction. The target of the goto is formed following the same rules as a variable name with a colon appended.
  • When the CALL action is used, the function call object must be a valid C function call at every SQL statement to which the exception declaration applies. This translates to a regular C function call and follows the same rules.
