Yeah, I guess I should trust my try/catch block to deal with problems.

I guess I should have said "to determine a unsuccessful update", and by
that I mean the update statement is well formed but doesn't update
anything.  The issue I have only happens when I use the SSQLS
constructor created for comparison.  The update statement that is
created is odd and malformed:

            $�п8�п� SET Unit_id = 133,ShortName = 'those',LongName =
'each' WHERE Unit_id = 133

and affected_rows() returns 18446744073709551615

I don't know what I have in my code that is causing the issue, but the
example I modified works fine.  I attached the example, but I don't need
this issue resolved because the issue is with my code.

Thanks for the help again,
