ODBC Driver Error Messages

An error reported on the BASIS ODBC Driver has the following format:

[BASIS] [BASIS ODBC Driver] error message

Some ODBC error messages include a value for the fserr and fserrs parameters in the error text.

  • The fserr value minus 1 is equivalent to the same PRO/5 error number. For example, fserr=13 would indicate a PRO/5 !ERROR12 (Missing or Duplicate File).

  • A positive fserrs value indicates that no host error occurred.

  • A negative fserrs value indicates an underlying host error occurred. Use the absolute value of the fserrs value to determine the system error from the operating system. For example, fserrs= -92 would indicate a host error 92.

Following is a list of PRO/5 error numbers and their descriptions that may be returned by fserr:
