I have a very strange problem.

I have a Pro*c insert statement...

EXEC SQL INSERT INTO....

when I compile I get error

1506-056 (S) Break statement cannot be placed outside a while, do, for, or switch statement.

Not only does the line to which the error points not have a Break statement, there isnt even a break statement in the entire function!!

Anyone come across this before or have any suggestions about any debug I can do?

Ive looked in the *.c file and there is indeed a break statement in about the right area, but it isnt in the .pc file
Very strange.

follow up. I now think the fact that I have a break in the .c file is a red herring. It looks like every time a host variable is used, you get this statement at the end of the block...  if (sqlca.sqlcode == 1403) break;

Amazing!!! OK That works ... but why!
What is it not finding? It isnt a select its an insert.

Pro*C is just a program it is just applying  macro processing to produce compilable c code.

If you havn't defined what to do WHENEVER NOT FOUND it is just expanding it's default rule into the c code.

You are supposing Pro*C is more sophisticated than it really is.

From Oracle Docs
An INSERT can return NOT FOUND if no rows have been inserted.
