Has anyone been able to use EXEC_SQL as described on page 397 of AwareIM 8.4 User Guide?

EXEC_SQL Action
This action executes the specified SQL string by invoking the database engine, for
example:
EXEC_SQL `UPDATE CRM_Customer SET Name='John'`


When we use it (with table and column names changed to match our database). We get an
Code: Select all Internal Error


The command is making it to mySQL because if we use incorrect table or column names we get an explicit message complaining about those bad names. We can also execute the submitted command at mySQL command line and it works OK there.

I've found a remedy to this error.

If you add
Code: Select allRETURN BO
to the end of the action there is no "Internal Error" and the SQL is successfully executed. So
Code: Select allEXEC_SQL `UPDATE CRM_Customer SET Name='John'` RETURN AnyBO
works ok. (replacing CRM_Customer, Name and AnyBO with a real Business Object)

Seems AwareIM just wants to see this
Code: Select allRETURN AnyBo
at the end of the command even though it does not return anything related to "AnyBo".

This EXEC_SQL is powerful but as Vlad warns
to be careful when using this acton as you can stuff up your database
