It's late Friday afternoon and things are not working as I think it should or I could just be tired and can not think straight, so I would be happy for some help, thanks in advance ...

I want to know the expected behaviour for try/catch and EXCEPTION

I thought:

CREATE PROCEDURE DUMMIE
BEGIN TRY
    ---calls other functions which makes different inserts
END TRY
BEGIN CATCH
   -- If the inserts fails I end up here without any display of error       
   -- messages
   -- I can do rollback and call another procedure which does a      
   -- insert and do commit
END CATCH;

Is this wrong?

What I get: when the inserts fails I get an pop-up with an error message but I also end up in catch section, but the procedures are not called...

and I can also add that this procedure should be used in a scheduled job...scheduled event

EXCEPTION

If I only got (in my procedure)

EXCEPTION WHEN OTHERS THEN

shouldn't this catch all types of errors in the procedure without displaying any error messages? And I would then be able to do rollback and call other procedures, do commit??

Please show us the actual code, and the actual error message (popup).

Note that not all SQL codes are treated as exceptions; e.g., row not found.

In addition to Breck's advice: To cite from Ivan, there are differences between errors noted during the opening and the fetching of result sets - cf. this FAQ (I don't claim it does relate anyhow to your question, not n´knwoing the actual code):

What is the reason for the failure of INSERT?
