*Disclaimer - this will be kind of vague mainly because I only vaguely
recall the material.
I am trying to create a stored procedure. Now I vaguely recall reading
something that says I have to match a column type if I am messing with
one. Something like I want to match a table column type... even if I
don't know what it is. I think it was something like TYPE
table.column... I'm not sure if it was only in a DECLARE or if I can set
one of the INOUT vars to the column type as well.
Hell I can't even remember if it was MySQL or something I read about
while researching stored procedures in general and it dealt with a
different database system
Anyone have any ideas what the heck I am talking about or if it is even
supported in MySQL? If it is - any help pointing me in the right
general direction to get some information on it would be helpful. If it
isn't - I will just make the datatype fixed.
I have been looking over the MySQL manual pages on stored procedures,
the articles on the MySQL developer zone and google (of course) and
can't find it anywhere.
life is a game... so have fun.
